“Promenade architecture” was first put forward by Le Corbusier. With the continuous progress and development of contemporary science and technology, the complexity and ambiguity of “Promenade architecture” is more obvious. This paper summarizes the characteristics of plane free organization, facade ambiguity and multi-choice path in the uncertainty of contemporary “Promenade architecture” after sorting out typical contemporary architectural cases, which correspond to the needs of parent-child reading space. As a functional type of parent-child space, parent-child reading space also has the tendency of neglecting parent-child interaction, lacking the connotation of “teaching for pleasure” and leaning towards the organization of indoor playgrounds. Therefore, major elements of the paper is how to combine the parent-child nature and interesting needs of parent-child reading space, and deeply study the architectural expression of the uncertain characteristics of “Promenade architecture”. In view of the design background of parent-child reading space, the changes that can be attempted and the organizational methods that can be implemented are the research focus of this paper.
