City Library in Seinäjoki | JKMM Architects
The new Seinäjoki library assumes a place within the city’s existing administrative and cultural centre designed by Alvar Aalto. Fitting the building to this distinguished pre-existing environment formed the most significant starting point of the design process. Aalto’s masterpiece of urban design is not an easy target for complementary construction. The aim was to create a new building that not only adapts to its prestigious setting but also challenges it.
The program of the library reflects the needs of a quintessential public library of any mid-sized city. Open, adaptable spaces connect to one another seamlessly, while views unfold towards the most impressive aspects of the environs. The spatial design pays special attention to the changing role of the library; the collection itself is no longer the centre of focus, but rather the space itself as a location for public gatherings, social contact, and the simple act of being in the presence of knowledge.
Cultural Center Mareel by Gareth Hoskins Architects
Mareel is the northernmost cultural center in the entire United Kingdom, on the Eastern coast of Shetland Islands. Studio Garreth Hoskins equipped it with a simple but robust shape, that reflects the architecture and materials used in the local fish industry.
Situated in the historic dock of Hay, overlooking Bressay Sound, and sheltered from water by the dry land between the Shetlands and the island of Bressay, Marell hosts a multifunctional auditorium, two cinemas, a recording studio and one for multimedia production, rehearsal rooms, teaching spaces and a bar.
