"Anttinen Oiva Architects: Recent Works March 14"
Vesa Oiva, architect and co-founder of Anttinen Oiva Architects speaks about recent and current projects at the firm, including the Helsinki University Library, City Centre Campus Library, Kaisa Branch, which upon completion in spring 2012, will be the largest academic library in Finland.
About the firm:
Selina Anttinen and Vesa Oiva founded Anttinen Oiva Architects in 2006. The office works extensively with both building design and urban planning. Presently ten architects are employed in the office, based in Helsinki.
The office was founded after winning architectural competitions. The works in progress include: a new residential area in the former garrison area of Poltinaho in Hämeenlinna; as well as a winter swimming center in Rovaniemi. Common to the design of all these schemes is the desire for an ambitious, exciting, and versatile contemporary architecture derived from a demanding context. The objective is to create unique and sustainable environments.
