After setting up in New York, Venice, Bilbao, Berlin and, very shortly, in Abou-Dhabi, the Guggenheim Foundation has unveiled the project for its future museum in Helsinki. From the 1,700 participants in the call for projects, the Franco-Japanese architecture firm Moreau Kusunoki Architectes (MKA) was selected. The project will extend over 18,000 m2 along the docks of the Eteläsatama district, in the Finnish capital. The museum will be built as a cultural gateway on the Baltic sea. Nevertheless, the Guggenheim Foundation has not yet released the official date for the opening of the future museum.
