ADEPT has designed the library and the surrounding urban spaces as a dynamic meeting place with activities for students, staff and visitors to the Dalarna University.
Vice Chancellor Marita Hilliges described her pride in the new library using two recurring words in her speech to the large public that had gathered for the opening celebrations: "Finally" and "Wow". The Vice Chancellor opened the ceremony, which marks the end of the five-year-long process since the decision was taken to build a new library.
