Helsinki Central Library
The Helsinki library will be situated in the new green heart of Helsinki. The project will occupy 4500m² of the site. The intention is to replace the existing green that we subtract to the park in a indoor environment perfectly controlled. We decided to conceive the building as a tree forest enclosed in a climatic box, in which the structure represents the causality of the wood . The natural organization of the pillars is then reproduced on the glazed envelope that creates the link between nature and architecture, between the light and the shadows.
