The Helsinki Centra Library concept is part of a larger competition to establish a new cultural center in the capital and largest city of Finland. A stunning design, it proposes the transform a space traditionally used for research and reading into a place for personal cultivation, culture enhancement and entertainment. By becoming a social center with multiple responsibilities rather than just a few, the Helsinki Centra Library will become a hotspot for people of all ages.

Designed by OODA, a Portuguese based architecture design office, the Helsinki Centra Library promotes this versatility through an equally versatile space. The crowning feature has to be the roof. Like a mini valley, it offers a convenient path to access the park at the back easily.
