Helsinki Central Library Open International Architecture Competition

  • The Heart of the Metropolis – the City of Helsinki’s two-stage open international architectural competition for the design of the Helsinki Central Library has been resolved. In the jury report, the competition jury characterised the winning entry as follows: “The architecture of the proposal is of a very high quality, executed with relaxed, broad strokes, and memorable. The proposal provides excellent premises for the development of a completely new functional concept for the library. The building has a unique appeal and the prerequisites to become the new symbolic building which Helsinki residents, library users, as well as the staff will readily adopt as their own.”
