What could the new Guggenheim look like?

As you might have heard the Guggenheim foundation wants to open a new museum in Helsinki. At the moment there is still a lot of discussion about the plan since the project would get quite pricy for the city of Helsinki. It might still take a while till a decision about the new museum is made.

The Arkki School of Architecture for Children and Youth didn’t want to wait that long. With their students aged 4 to 19 they started thinking about how the new museum at Helsinki’s South Harbor could look like. And the kids came up with really cool ideas. Using all kinds of different materials they proved their creativity.

The results of their work can be seen at Laituri till April 28th. The entrance is free.


  1. I like the graffiti 'Fuck Guggenheim, we have walls'. I think Helsinki could benefit with the increase in traffic that the museum possibly could bring. Helsinki however, has a great number of awesome museums.
