global coordinates

The numbers on these masks are the global coordinates of Central Library Oodi in Helsinki — a reminder that we’re all connected no matter our gender, race, religion, or where we live.

Sitting directly opposite of the Finnish parliament building as a reminder of the government’s mandate for libraries to promote lifelong learning, active citizenship, democracy, and freedom of expression, Helsinki’s Central Library Oodi was built with local spruce planks, passive energy principles, and extreme energy-efficient performance that reaches near Zero Energy Building status.
