The proposed Guggenheim Museum in Helsinki will consist of four cubes, enveloped by an imposing, transparent and dynamically creased glass façade, which symbolises openness. The isolated, driftwood-lined cubes would house all main exhibition spaces.
Ambient galleries, where further works of art and design can be exhibited, will establish the connection between collection rooms and façade, as well as form a link between interior and exterior. The transparent façade will afford a vantage point to the sea and the attractions of the city from every part of the museum. In this way, the silhouette of the Helsinki will form part of the museum.
The visually compelling, timeless architecture of the prospective Guggenheim Museum in Helsinki will not only be a premier, compelling destination for visitors, but it will also be a fascinating and inspiring gathering place for people across all cultures, who are interested in arts, design and architecture.
