Project Drivers :

The client’s brief was to create a new, iconic and recognizable skyline for the city of Helsinki, by bringing the Guggenheim Museum brand to the city and positioning Helsinki for the new Millenia.

Our Approach :

The proposal maximize the open exhibition areas enhancing the relation of the visitors between the different exhibitions. With this bigger take on the open exhibition areas, the flow of people coming to the museum will increase and the synergy between open areas and curated exhibitions will be more beneficial.

The connection with the roots of Finland’s architecture, and its strong relation to nature, is carefully shown by the election of materials, wood and shingles. The roofs are easily seen from any part of the harbour and instantly related to the traditions and roots of Finland.
