A library in Norway designed by Kengo Kuma features in today's Dezeen Weekly newsletter

The latest edition of our Dezeen Weekly newsletter includes a library in Norway designed by Kengo Kuma and Associates in collaboration with Mad Arkitekter.

Ibsen Library will be built in a park in Skien, Norway, and will become a cultural hub to exhibit the literature of Henrik Ibsen – a 19th-century playwright who was born in the Norwegian city.

Readers are delighted by the design, with one calling it, "Epic and understated at the same time".
