Steven Holl

Helsinki, Finland


An elegantly sculptural museum where thoughtful architecture and curation are in near perfect harmony. A successful series of discrete galleries offer a versatile yet coherent experience to the visitor.


Again the grand arc of Holl's entrance ramp performs the visual feat of focusing the visitor's gaze to an ever-decreasing point. We begin to concentrate as the world outside is pushed beyond the range of site and we move into a zone of close scrutiny. Then, as we emerge into the galleries beyond the curve, new zones open up to the eye, with new curves and new types of light. The architect makes a direct visual analog with the structure of the building to the act of entering a new and separate zone of seeing.
