The building is conceptually well rooted to the place where it stands and to the history of the museum itself. Finish architecture is always about nature. Finland is Europe’s most forested country, with about 70% of the land is covered with trees. Given this deep connection of the culture with the natural environment, What would be more honest that this majestic trees give shape to our build environment? The curvature of our façades respond to the vital space of the nearby trees. The brick solution, which dialogue with the industrial past of the city will be layered in a contemporary way by the use of parametric design tools the repeat actually the shadow and shapes of the trees onto the facade. A responsive solution to nature. But this is no an isolated solution. Masterpieces of the finish and world-class architecture already learn about the respect to nature, and show us in their shapes how truly significant architecture should look like. On top of that, Is there any betters representative to all of that the primary cultural necessity such as the Sara Hildén Art Museum?
