.@designboom ::: #Matteo_Cainer #architects: #Finland #Gösta_Serlachius #MUSEUM extension.

With offices in london, paris and milan, international practice matteo cainer architects have produced ‘taittogami’, a proposal for the gösta serlachius museum extension competition for gösta, finland. incorporating gösta serlachius’s interest of wood and paper processing, the exterior is a series of unfolding roof planes resembling origami which frame the nearby lake and island. the interior features kirigami principles of folded and cut shapes creating a series of complex architectural sequences.

creating a harmonious and blurred connection with the landscape, fluid volumes will project from the existing house, introducing visitors through a progression of flexible spaces for exhibitions, conferences, educational facilities and public events. a lakeshore deck will create a transition between land and water for visitors which leads to a sauna within the body of water. the complex will mourish the mind and body, providing intellectual stimulation within a tranquil environment.

Keeping with nordic tradition, the building is formed with timber, integrating the outer walls with the structure into a single component to create illuminated and column-free spaces with unique qualities while still withstanding immense snow loads. bitumen-coated weatherboarding clads the facades, angling and wrapping the inclined surfaces to emphasize their changes. operable glazed fins will alter daylight levels inside during the different seasons.
