“The Helsinki Guggenheim proposal operates as a spatial field that contains figure and void. The ground linework creates a sense of movement in space that integrates with the building’s figure and voids, providing a continuous spatial perception that leads visitors to the waterfront public spaces, into the museum and up through the floors. While there is a quick route up and down the floors through a timber atrium, the spaces of the building weave around the large atrium and foyer creating a continuous spatial experience. Each space is unique, while regular openings towards the two large voids enable the visitor to remain orientated. View vistas from within building focus towards key landmarks such as Market Square, Helsinki Cathedral, Uspenski Cathedral and the Valkosaari and Luoto Islands in the South”.
