Finnish architecture to feature in prime German location
The international team led by the Finnish architect Esa Ruskeepää has won a competition seeking a designer for a new city library and education centre in the heart of Wolfsburg, Germany.
The news was reported by Helsingin Sanomat.
The building, to be completed in 2017, will include work facilities for a media centre, high school and adult education centre, in addition to a city library.
Wolfsburg is one of Germany’s wealthiest cities. The city of 120 000 inhabitants already features Finnish architecture in the form of a cultural centre designed by Alvar Aalto.
