A key element of the proposal is the importance and potential of building siting and massing. Starting from the original long rectangular footprint of parcel 2014 - we proposed a reconfiguration of the 32m x 150m (4800m2) boundary to a 70m x 70m square on the northern half of the block. We believed this relocation and change in footprint of the library site would not only maximize the urban and architectural potential, but also help create a new hub for social life among the local community and the city of Helsinki.
