The latest addition to Helsinki, Oodi (which is Finnish for 'ode') celebrates Finland’s 100th independent year. It represents a new era of libraries by not adhering to the convention of being solely used for reading and learning. Instead, the triple-levelled landmark by ALA Architects ( @ala_architects ) serves as a hub of activity in the heart of the city. It is envisioned as an above-ground, asymmetrical bridge spanning over 1,080 sq ft in length. The corridor-like architecture results in a flexible, column-free spatial plan. Each of Oodi’s three floors has a distinctive ambience.
