1195. Rakennettua Kulttuuria. Kiasma, Helsinki






















Dear Fedir,

"For our Helsinki Museum of Contemporary
Art, Kiasma the most important building
material was light. Of the twenty-five galleries
which make up the main function of the
museum all have a slice of natural light. The
behavior of light guided many decisions. The
low angle of the Helsinki sun – never reaching
above 51 degrees – helps give sectional form
to the curved “light catching” aspect of the
architecture. Changes in natural lighting
conditions are left visible – so passing clouds
bring shadow – brightness varies as the interior
experience varies." (Steven Holl)

Thank you,
R
