:New public library in the city of Aarhus. Located beside the harbour on the east side of Aarhus, Urban Mediaspace is the largest construction project in the Danish city's history and the library – known as Dokk1 – is set to become the biggest in Scandinavia. Schmidt Hammer Lassen, which won a competition to design the complex in 2009, conceived the building as a stack of different volumes – a "polygonal slice" on top, a glazed building in the middle and a podium at the base. This creates space for the library and a local services centre, as well as a dedicated station for the new light railway and a car park with an automated parking system.
