[memory] architecture can be read: the library of Xuhui contains the flying dream of chasing stars month by month

A smiling portrait of Qian Xuesen can be vaguely seen on the exterior wall facing Huashan Road.

The height of 9.8 meters from top to bottom symbolizes Qian Xuesen’s magnificent life in 1998.

The building area of the library is 8188 square meters; With a height of 23.9m, it is divided into four floors: one underground and three above the ground.

On one side of it is a huge oil painting “the most dangerous moment”, which depicts the critical moment of the docking between the missile and the atomic bomb in the “combination of two bombs” test.

The old library of Jiaotong University, built in 1919, is a Victorian style building with an area of more than 2600 square meters and a collection of more than 100000 books.


Since then, Qian Xuesen’s name has been associated with Jiaotong University, which has also left the footprints of a generation of “learning God” from the green years to the road of aerospace serving the country.

In his life, he has read more than 30000 books (volumes) covering all aspects of the national economy and the people’s livelihood.

He also took the lead in formulating the far-reaching “eight years and four bombs” plan in the history of China’s missile development.

Its shape is designed by China’s famous architectural designers.

A silver satellite is hanging on the zenith between the round hall and the temporary exhibition hall, which is the 1:1 simulation model of “dongfanghong-1” satellite.

The inverted triangle art installation composed of 4015 pages of “Qian Xuesen’s manuscript” is like a vigorous mushroom cloud rising in the air, implying that Qian Xuesen’s 4015 days and nights from his return to China on October 8, 1955 to the success of his experiment of “combination of two bombs” on October 27, 1966 are Qian Xuesen’s patriotic The embodiment of dedication.

During this period, it has transmitted telemetry parameters and various space exploration data.

  On the book wall, Qian Xuesen toured the sea of learning and read a wide range of books.

It is known as the cradle of China’s record industry, a treasure house of music art and a palace of sound memory.

It is the place Qian Xuesen must go every day when he goes to school.

You can also wear VR glasses to explore the tranquility in the eyes of the typhoon and feel the “storm” outside the cyclone..

   The original statue of “dongfanghong-1” is still traveling in space, witnessing many achievements, such as the implementation of the lunar sampling and return mission of “chang’e-5”, the implementation of the exploration mission of “tianwen-1” to Mars, and the basic completion of the space-based system of the high score special project 50 years later.

Baidai building – the place where the march of the volunteers is recorded address: No.

On the other side is the recovery scene “underground control room”, which reproduces the scene of “seven warriors” putting life and death aside.

By the end of last year, the library had collected more than 61000 documents, manuscripts and books, more than 700 physical objects, more than 1500 photos of Qian Xuesen, and nearly 1500 documents and physical objects on display.

This group of sofas and coffee tables used in those years witnessed the start-up process of China’s aerospace industry.

About one seventh of his collection is displayed here.

The original geometry, which he participated in the translation, is the first Western science book translated and published in China, with far-reaching influence.

It has actually worked in space for 28 days.

Now, slowly down the circular ramp in the library, you can come to the round hall, where stands the “treasure of the town” of Qian Xuesen Library – Dongfeng 2A missile entity.

Qian Xuesen received a thick pile of satellite technology and test documents.

In addition to the preface hall, underground circular hall and temporary exhibition hall, the permanent exhibition of Qian Xuesen library is divided into four parts: the founder of China’s aerospace industry, the pioneer of the frontier of science and technology, the style of people’s scientists and the success of strategic scientists.

  Restoration of the living room scene of Qian Xuesen’s family during the start-up period of China’s aerospace industry, Qian Xuesen will invite several chief designers to his home every Sunday afternoon.

The exterior wall of the building is mainly red and gray, embedded in a light and transparent glass body, with a simple and solemn appearance.
