Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
An urban and landscape structure. A Museum with a view, a new waterfront space with extreme landscape perspectives.
The Tahititornin Vuori Park extension towards the waterfront integrates the museum into an ecological green system inside the city realm. The creation of a mirrored plan, reflecting the water and extending the city´s image and skyline. A metaphorical icon that shows itself in the urban outline, through its abstract radicality and its imagery continuity.
An ecological and sustainable construction. A living building – integrating plants, trees and structure.
No concrete and free-carbon construction, using wood as structural leading material, as a metaphor to Finnish construction tradition, ancient naval and harbor constructions. A limitless expressionist and deconstructed “Land Art” installation, that provides a first sensorial experience.
Space and Art, a Flexible Framework.
The concretization of generous, flexible, super-polyvalent and easy-changeable spaces. Simple powerful geometries, with natural lighting and engaging visual connections. The open configuration exhibition galleries with flowing spaces that can be adapted and reconfigured according to curatorial vision.
