Finland’s representation at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia explores the development of Finnish library architecture and looks towards libraries of the future, conceiving libraries as key buildings reminding us of the values of civic society. The Freespace of Libraries seminar will explore the exhibition’s themes, leading up to the opening of Helsinki Central Library Oodi (ALA Architects) in December 2018.
