Helsinki Central Library Competition Entry / Plan 01

© Milovann Yanatchkov

In the virtualized information era, Plan 01 believes the design for the Central Library should be more than ever a “physical space”. The project should be a place for sensory experience, a place where culture becomes an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas, a place where the civil forum is recovered from the virtual and returned to the urban world. Their concept becomes a symbol in stone and that opens its heart to the city and offers visitors a retreat for body and mind. More images and architects’ description after the break.
