The Pinch

The Pinch is a library and community centre built as part of a government reconstruction following the 2012 Yunnan earthquakes in China. It’s located in the mountain village of Shuanghe, that had been practically completely destroyed by the earthquakes. The government had begun a plan to build new concrete housing for the villagers, but the central square had been left empty. The University of Hong Kong took it upon themselves to sponsor the building of the community centre next to the square as a way to offer a meeting place for local residents, as well as a space where children can play and read.
