Code participated in the competition for a new public library in Helsinki, Finland.

The competition proposal seeks to define the library as an important and inviting public institution in Helsinki. The public character of the building is articulated through an iconic void carved out of the shape. This clearly defined space expresses the library´s availability to the city and works as “the new metropolitan living room” of Helsinki.
