Guggenheim Helsinki

RAFI SEGAL ARCHITECTURE & URBANISM

International Competition 

Helsinki, Finland | 12,000 sq. m.

Project Director: Rafi Segal

2014 New York, USA

The urbanism of Helsinki, as much as the museum’s program, plays a defining role in shaping the new Guggenheim located in Eteläsatama. Capturing the activity of the city’s south harbor, the project creates a series of terraces and courtyards, cut-out of the building’s mass, which extend the urban public space of the waterfront onto the higher ground of Tahititornin Vuori Park. The ascending movement of these terraces is echoed in the interior organization of the museum which is conceived as an architectural promenade of exhibition spaces and urban vistas. Tourists and residents, art and community meet through the new museum building and within it. The icon of cultural activity seen from afar becomes, at close, an urban landscape of courtyards and passages which enhances the experience of the city and its fellowship with the elements

of nature.

I am an Architect-Engineer, and Conceptual Urban Designer. My research and practice engage issues of urbanization, infrastructure, and the dynamics of the collective.
