National Library of Sweden

Instead of tearing down the smaller existing building, the design envisages the sensible incorporation of the new cubage into the existing building structure. In the form of fingers and bridges, the building grows out of the park landscape and intermeshes with the main and auxiliary buildings. Beams of light bring daylight deep into the building’s interior and give the room rhythm.
