Helsinki
Guggenheim in Helsinki?

 

11.01.2012

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation proposed building a museum in the Finnish capital of Helsinki after a year long study to determine the possibility of its creation. The 190-page study was commissioned in January 2011 by the mayor of Helsinki. The total area of the museum, to be built on a city-owned location along the south harbor waterfront, would be about 12,000 square meters. City councilors are expected to decide on the 140 million euro project next month and if approved, the earliest the museum could open would be in 2017.

A press statement released by the Guggenheim Foundation stated that the new museum would help contextualize Finnish art, design, and architecture within the broader tradition of modern art while presenting Finnish audiences with artworks from around the world. It would also have a stronger focus on architecture and design than other Guggenheim affiliates. “It ... (will) make an outstanding contribution to the cultural life of the Nordic and Baltic regions.”

“Helsinki now has an incredible possibility that we should embrace,” Mayor Jussi Pajunen said. “The Guggenheim Museum would be a distinct place in Finland’s cultural landscape.”

The Guggenheim Foundation’s network includes museums in New York, Bilbao, Berlin and Venice, while another establishment is currently being built in Abu Dhabi.
