The new Tingbjerg Library and Culture House creates new possibilities for social interaction, culture and urban transformation all of which have a positive effect on city life.

The Jury says
The Tingbjerg Library and Culture House is a bold statement that addresses the notion of a socially marginalized in the city and the notion of a library building itself. The store-front approach of displaying culture to the local community is very effective. COBE architects have designed a building of both high quality and craftsmanship. The library helps bring back trust, community and public life to the area, thus contributing to a more liveable city.
