25 Feb Helsinki Guggenheim museum project

Architectural studio Moreau Kusunoki won the competition to develop the concept of building the Guggenheim Museum in Helsinki. Introduced by her image is based on a combination of modern “flying” facade panels and glass with an abundance of traditional use in the lining of charred wood.

The main attention was paid to the relationship Architects interior and exterior spaces, as well as the functionality of the premises. “Can the museum become transparent? – We asked ourselves Nicolas Moreau and Hiroko Kusunoki. – How to create a porous structure between the museum and its surroundings, in order to achieve free flow of visitors to the territory “?

The openness of the first floor and the walking zone – the most important element of the project. This approach is a response to an active movement of people in an area created by a variety of shops and museum sites. On the ground floor there is also a working area of the museum, which has been integrated into the common space available to visitors.

Objectives are combining multiple panels on the facade gives the building a visual lightness. They beat a solid massive walls needed to create a closed art galleries with a certain temperature and humidity level. “Our concept was the invitation to the public to engage in dialogue with art, architecture and the very place,” – the authors of the project.
