677. The Sibelius Museum

Dear Erik,

The great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius said once that
the framework of a symphony must be so strong that it
forces you to follow it, regardless of the environment and
circumstances. The Sibelius Museum, a remarkable work
of architect Woldemar Baeckman, seems to fit naturally
in that description: a strong framework that dominates
natures yet offers a pleasant serenity. The perfect
combination between silence and music, exterior and
interior, daylight and nightfall.
