Team on July 1
WHAT
The announcement of the winning design in the open, international design competition organized by
the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation for a proposed Guggenheim museum in Helsinki.
Inaugurated in June 2014, the competition generated a record-making 1,715 submissions from 77
countries. In December 2014, the 11-member jury announced a shortlist of six designs to be developed
as finalists, selecting them for their potential in engaging with the site on Helsinki’s South Harbor,
contributing to the urban context, advancing sustainable architecture and challenging, or expanding on,
conventional museum practice. In keeping with European Union procurement rules, the identities of the
firms responsible for the six finalist designs were announced but not matched to the submissions. On
June 23, the winning design and its architect will be revealed.
WHEN
Tuesday, June 23 at 11 am Eastern European Summer Time (UTC+3)
WHERE
Palace, Eteläranta 10, Helsinki
WHO
Richard Armstrong, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Foundation
Mark Wigley, Chair, Guggenheim Helsinki design Competition jury and Professor and Dean
Emeritus, Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation
Jussi Pajunen, Mayor, City of Helsinki
Ari Lahti, Chairman, Guggenheim Helsinki Supporting Foundation, and
Architects from the Winning design Team
HOW
The design competition was privately funded and organized by the Guggenheim in consultation with
the City of Helsinki, the State of Finland, and the Finnish Association of Architects (SAFA). Malcolm
Reading Consultants (UK) was competition manager. The City of Helsinki and the State of Finland will
now decide whether to proceed with developing a Guggenheim Helsinki. If the project is undertaken,
funding will come from public and private sources, including the non-profit Guggenheim Helsinki
Supporting Foundation.
NEXT
Following the announcement of the winner, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York will
host a free public program on July 1 at 6 pm in its Peter B. Lewis Theater, led by Architectural Record
editor-in-chief Cathleen McGuigan and introducing the architects responsible for the winning design.
