The design team behind the Library's inviting new spaces included one of Scandinavia's best-regarded architectural practices, Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects.

In this video, the firm's founding partner, Morten Schmidt, shares his views on contemporary design and the principle of putting people first.

Morten believes contemporary design can enhance the relevance of modern libraries to people and their communities by creating inclusive areas that are flexible enough to support varied uses.
