Uusi Paviljonki – New Pavilion


The new proposed entrance building to National Museum of Finland consists of a minimal glazed pavilion that maximizes transparency and permeability within the existing gardens with sensitivity to the existing museum designed by Herman Gesellius, Armas Lindgren and Eliel Saarinen.

The pavilion follows the length of the existing stone wall and the orthogonal grid of the historic edifice. Sensitive to the existing trees, the siting of the pavilion allows the preservation of the row of Plane trees whilst allowing open parkland for events and outdoor exhibition.
