“We decided to coat the facades of the archive with graffiti. This black national memory stick is embroidered with tags found in the depths of the archive: from peasants’ bookmarks and the letters of kings to contemporary internet symbols. This was made possible by the Graphic Concrete technology.”
Mikko Heikkinen, Architect, Heikkinen-Komonen Architects
The building is a winner of the Finnish Concrete Structure of the Year 2009 award.
