Most recently it became known winner of the best design of the Guggenheim Museum in Helsinki. Recall that a year ago was declared an international competition, which was attended by a record number of architects and designers. This event has become the most important in the world of modern architecture.
Parisian architectural firm Moreau Kusunoki Architectes won a sensational contest for the best design of the Guggenheim Museum (Guggenheim Helsinki Museum), which will be built on the waterfront in the center of the Finnish capital – Helsinki.
The competition was attended by 1715 projects, including the authoritative jury selected six. Each project was assigned an alphanumeric code without specifying the name of the company party. However, apart from bombast and extent of competition, the public is interested in the question: would benefit from a modern building near the historical center of the city in the South Harbour. In addition, the premium in the amount of € 100,000 is also partly allocated from the local budget. Of course, it is not surprising that the jury has chosen a very low-key project.
Architects Nicolas Moreau and Hiroko Kusunoki described his work as “Art in the city» («Art in the city»). The museum in their performance will be carried out in the form of 9 pavilions, which will house a variety of exposure. In addition to these, the museum complex also built a lighthouse tower with an observation deck.
The facades will dominate black burnt wood and glass panels. Natural light will be able to seamlessly fill the interior of the museum.
