Lo scorso mese di Giugno è stato proclamato il vincitore del prestigioso concorso internazionale di progettazione per il Guggenheim Museum di Helsinki
in Finlandia. La Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation
, ha premiato lo studio Moreau Kusunoki Architectes
che è stato selezionato dalla giuria tra i 1.715 progettisti che hanno partecipato anonimatamente da circa 77 Paesi.
“I extend the Guggenheim’s warmest congratulations to Moreau Kusunoki for having achieved the design goals of this competition with such elegance, sensitivity, and clarity,” said Richard Armstrong, Director of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation.
“I also want to express our admiration and gratitude to the other five finalists and to all of the architects who participated in this competition. Rarely has such a concentration of architectural intelligence been directed at a single design challenge. Nearly two thousand designers from around the world turned their thoughts to the future of Helsinki’s South Harbor
and the possibilities of a museum for the twenty-first century. By making these competition entries available online, we also have contributed an unprecedented volume of design information that is now freely available for study and use. For this reason, while the design competition has now ended, we are confident that its contribution to architectural discourse and the public imagination has only just begun.”
