Project designed in a one-week session. The objective was to submit a proposal for the Guggenheim Museum / Helsinki design competition.
The waterfront of the city is dominated by economic activities that prevent access to the sea for the inhabitants. This project aims to reverse the situation by creating an “urban tsunami”. The public paths are extended through the building, towards the sea. Museum spaces extend outside to invite people to visit the exhibitions located on the first and lower ground floors. The large windows enable passers-by to have a glimpse of the collections and encourage them to come inside.
This museum also offers services for visitors as well as inhabitants on the ground floor: an auditorium, a library, a workshop, a café and a restaurant. Its rooftop is like a viewing gallery for enjoying the view of Helsinki harbour.
