Fangsuo Commune is a multi-functional cultural space designed by Chinese practice Chu Chih-Kang Space Design in Chengdu’s city center, China. FC combines a bookstore, aesthetic pavilion, cafe, art gallery and independent fashion brand. Fangsuo Commune is hidden at the underground level of the commercial streets, which surrounds the Daci Temple. Therefore architects CKSP had a bold idea of creating a modern underground “Sutra Depository”. Sutra Depository is a private place to store all kinds of knowledge, such as books, sutras, and letters in ancient China. Many raw materials and techniques were used to resemble the scene of an ancient sutra depository, for example, concrete columns with large cutting surfaces, bookcases in the loft, the bridge and catwalk across the bookcases, the result is an awe-inspiring space.
