Helsinki Central Library Competition Entry / Marc Anton Dahmen | Studio DMTW | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Courtesy of Marc Anton Dahmen | Studio DMTW Aiming to provide a meeting place for information, knowledge, skills, and stories, the proposal by Marc Anton Dahmen | Studio DMTW for the Helsinki Central Library competition reflects the creativity, innovation and interaction for the people of Helsinki. Resulting in the sculptural massing of the building, their design derives from the creation of an vertical circulation element, connecting the building by transiting from one function to another throughout the entire collection area.
