Turku Library Turku, Finland. Rick Shands, Architect 1995. This proposal is for an extension to the existing library that is actually across the street, and was to be joined via an underground tunnel. The formation takes advantage of the set-back apartment building's garden. The cylindrical volume contains a periodicals reading room on the ground floor and two of four departments on the upper two levels. Internally, the library is organized around a central atrium.
