The Library building looks simple and solemn, with an appearance like the eroded rock in Gobi Desert. The reddish facade facing Huashan Road conceals Mr. Qian’s smiling face with the eyes seemingly staring right into the glass wall at the missile, an architectural expression of "embracing the earth, ground-breaking achievement".
