Helsinki Central Library 2018 is a new kind of project, whose contents and operation models are being sought in co-operation with the library, city residents, and partners. The Central Library project is based on the idea that more than architects’ pens are needed to create a new, functional library at the Helsinki City centre: the needs and wishes of city residents are incorporated into the design process. There are two sides to interaction with the city residents. On one hand, this is about a new kind of development work: user-oriented innovation and co-creation. On the other hand, there is a desire to improve participatory democracy and the opportunities of the city residents to participate and make a difference, and to open up the decision-making processes. http://bit.ly/1EFtwQI
