Moreau Kusunoki announced as winner of Guggenheim Helsinki competition
The competition, anonymous and international, was the first such project organised by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Consisting of two stages, the first, open round received over 1700 entries from 77 countries. For the second step, 6 entrants were invited to elaborate on their projects. The shortlisted architects took part on a 3-day on-site briefing, and were given further material essential for expanding their proposals. The outcome was showcased in form of an exhibition this spring, and now, with the announcement of the winner, the one-year long process has came to an end. In close cooperation with the City of Helsinki, the realisation of the proposal is on the agenda of the Guggenheim Foundation. The project is now in the fundraising stage, inviting private and public stakeholders. So hopefully, the Moreau Kusunoki’s glorious plans will turn to reality.
