The New Amos Anderson Art Museum locates in a new construction under the refurbished Lasipalatsi from the last century in the heart of Helsinki. The entrance, the auditorium as well as the administrative locates in the renovated part of Lasipalatsi.
Dome-shaped structures are cast in reinforced concrete on site creating the characteristic element to the gallery. The dome structure enables to build the large flexible gallery space without pillars, and opens views to the characteristic details of the surroundings uniting the urban space with the museum under ground.
The new construction not only adapts to the old and valuable premises but also stands out representing todays' architecture. The curved shapes build a theme inside and outside creating an all-encompassing experience.
The museum is funded by Föreningen Konstsamfundet.
