Leading-edge design for a new living library in Helsinki
A story about helping to build new Helsinki Central Libray Oodi
Imagine being chosen to participate in building an architectural wonder that has changed the face of the city of Helsinki. The new Helsinki Central Oodi Library, or “ode” in English, opened its doors to the public on December 5, 2018, one day before Finland’s 101st anniversary of independence. This poetry in architecture, one of the most advanced structures in the Nordic countries, Oodi Library exalts the very elements of glass, wood and steel that work in balance as a free-standing masterpiece.
