Guggenheim Helsinki Museum in Helsinki, Norway by Jan Ledwon

It was intended to express Scandinavian honesty and openness in the Guggenheim Helsinki Museum building. Simplicity and extraordinary solutions can be found here.

Let the building of the Museum be the main gate to the city of Helsinki from the sea. It should be placed according to the urban regulations which shape the new building of the Guggenheim Helsinki Museum.

While being a visually stimulating object in space, the building should accent the direction towards the old city centre. It was gained by choosing the right site – it means – on the end of the axis of the Baltic ferries.

The new Guggenheim Helsinki Museum is not only a bridge between you and art but it also connects PARK located above the site with the travelers giving the opportunity to visit not only the Museum but also to relax after a long trip.

The building is an automatically and solid repeated composition of open spaces and closed art galleries, giving the opportunity to locate desired functions along the Path of the Art. The building aims to be right background for the art which is meant to be presented there.

Almost wholly movable spacial and wall solutions provide the opportunity to fully close the gallery or rather move people’s hearts and make the gallery space vertical divisions turn to the be fully transparent and invisible.

Flexibility and simplicity of the space shape the interior and exterior of the space. The art which is being displayed here is not only the main reason for the building but it also shapes the spacial solutions. Contemporary artists can improvise and research factors of the museum space. The building provides flexibility.

The building of the Museum breaths art by the smoothly shaped curvature of the floor and the ceiling. It should be described as the main POINT in Helsinki. Artistic dot in space shaped like the curve of painting process.
