Guggenheim Helsinki Museum in Finland by LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Article source: LPzR architetti associati & Principioattivo architecture group

The skyline of the Guggenheim Helsinki Museum emerges as a sequence of soft golden waves undulating in the harbor.

To the north the volumes are low, to avoid shading the public realm and not to overlook the Palace Hotel; then they rise rapidly and decrease in the center of the building; towards the park the waves rise again and fall to the south, where they find a perfect balance with the harbor’s public realm. There’s a central slope between north and south so that the volume does not interfere with the main views from the park Tähtitornin Vuori, the Helsinki Cathedral and the Uspenski Cathedral.

GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM in Helsinki, Finland by Spark Architects

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

Article source: Spark Architects

DESIGN STATEMENT:

The design aims to function as a translator between the urban condition, the public, and the museum spaces.

The existing urban edges of the city context define a triangular building mass. Lifting the main exhibition space allows the public and the museum programme to float freely underneath, creating a continuous connection between the urban fabric and water.

G U G G E N H E I M H E L S I N K I in Finland by Rafi Segal Architecture

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

Article source: Rafi Segal Architecture 

The Urbanism of Helsinki, as much as the museum’s program, plays a defining role in shaping the new Guggenheim located in Eteläsatama.  Capturing the activity of the city’s south harbor, the project creates a series of terraces and courtyards, cut-out of the building’s mass, which extend the urban public space of the waterfront onto the higher ground of TahititorninVuori Park. The ascending movement of these terraces is echoed in the interior organization of the museum which is conceived as an architectural promenade of exhibition spaces and urban vistas. Tourists and residents, art and community meet through the new museum building and within it. The icon of cultural activity seen from a far becomes at close an urban landscape of courtyards and passages which enhances the experience of the city and its fellowship with the elements of nature.

VILLA KRONA in Kimito Island, Finland by Helin & Co Architects / Pekka Helin, Ritva Mannersuo

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: Helin & Co Architects / Pekka Helin, Ritva Mannersuo 

A small remote island in the Gullkrona Archipelago offers a panorama of changing seasons in the northern Baltic: late sunsets fill open skies and early sunrises dramatise rocky islands. In spring, constant birdsong greets the end of severe winter. Warm calm midsummer days are filled with scents of pine and juniper. Autumn storms drive huge waves over the rocks to freeze gradually, generating abstract formations of drifting ice. Finally, all is covered with snow. The villa is built to experience all this and counteract periods of urban hard work.
