Helsinki, Finland

Winner, World Architecture Community 20+10+X Architecture Awards

Positioning the museum parallel and adjacent to Skeppsbrogatan Laivasillankatu Street, Helsinki, allows the building to open up towards the sea on the south harbor. It creates an elevated open public plaza along the water promenade which mirrors the urban texture

near Helsinki Cathedral. In addition to being the entry portal for the North Market Square, the outdoor area serves as an extension of the gallery for outdoor sculptures and activities. The museum embodies conceptual and formal ideals of Finnish identity, bringing out a particular expression and abstraction of its balanced nature. The elongated twisting body merges two different types of uses, one, public at the north and two, galleries and exhibitions centers at the south, better suiting the more horizontal layout.
