 Vadsø bibliotek

 
Vadsø bibliotek ( Vadsø Library)
The main entrance is located on the southwest corner of the building. The asymmetric roof bestows the building with a weightless sculptural quality. A varied use of materials characterises the façades, such as glass, brick, wooden panelling, aluminium sheeting and slate. These materials were employed to emphasise different parts of the building. One could characterise the motif as a play between forms and dissimilar structures on the surface of the building.
