Gosta Museum of Fine Art extension in Mantta, Finland by gianluca milesi architecture

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Article source: gianluca milesi architecture

TheGostaMuseumis placed in a very particular location, merged in an extremely fascinating natural environment. Starting from this character of the existing museum building and the future extension, we thought to design a building that could be at the same time respectful of nature and could be merged itself in the particular environment. We thought at the building as a built media connecting the works of art and the visitors to the panorama and the beauty of nature.

Hämeenkyrö Environmental School in Finland by Hyperbuildings

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: Hyperbuildings

Mahnala environmental school is located in a rural setting in central Finland a few kilometers north of the city of Tampere. Currently the school is housed in an old building dating from 1903. This building is highly representative of the Finnish vernacular school- house of the time. As such it is an iconic symbol of the long-standing tradition of educational facilities on the site. The old building, however, has been undersized to house the activities of the growing municipality for years already.
