ALVAR AALTO INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

HONORABLE MENTION

Extension Between The Alvar Aalto Museum And The Museum Of Central Finland.

AWARD:

Given the level difference in the existing topography, the fact that we are in an urban park surrounded by major programmatic pieces for the city, it seems to be necessary to propose a public space that functions as a connection with Keskussairaalantie at northwest and a transition with the Ruusupuisto Square.
As for the union itself, is conceived as an adaptation to the existing topography, a space without interruption which serves as a transition between public spaces and a unique space in the shop and access to the museums. The shell of the new building itself is a gesture of topographical continuity and homage to the architecture master Alvar Aalto.
