The Future Library silent room is now open!
This year’s handover ceremony was a very special event, a milestone for a visionary project: not only the annual handover took place, but this year three acclaimed authors were part of the ceremony, which included the opening of the manuscripts’ resting place, the silent room in the new public library Deichman Bjørvika. The silent room will be home to all of the manuscripts contributed to the project until their eventual publication in the year 2114. The room is designed by artist Katie Paterson and architects Atelier Oslo and Lund Hagem. Watch the 2022 handover film here.
