ALVAR AALTO MUSIC AND ART CENTER

Jyvaskyla, Finland

  • Area:

    100,000 sq. ft, 1,200 seating capacity (project)
    Competition, in cooperation with V. Tripolsky and A. Okun

  • Program:

    Alteration of an old building designed by Aalto and addition of Concert hall to create world-class art and music facility.

  • Concept:

    Continuous ramp through the existing building to serve as the museum’s exposition. Also an intentionally simplified glass addition was made to articulate existing old-fashioned façade as a contrast to the egg-shaped volume of the new concert hall.
