Description

Amos Rex Art Museum - JKMM Architects invites you to explore the Amos Rex Art Museum in Helsinki – since its opening in 2018, the museum has become an essential landmark of the Helsinki city centre. In addition to offering insight into the museum's architecture, designed by JKMM Architects, and the history of the 1930's building that houses the museum, Lasipalatsi, the book provides a further discussion of the significance of museums in their surroundings and in society in general. The book was published by Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing.

Since its opening, the Amos Rex Art Museum, designed by JKMM Architects, has been a great public and architectural success. It is tucked away underground in the ancient glass palace in the heart of central Helsinki.

Through its architecture, it has set new boundaries for what a museum can and should be. With its huge arched exhibition halls and eye-catching lanterns that make it feel as though it is above ground, the building never fails to surprise.

Art museums seldom manage to be fully functional for all types of art, new and old, and at the same time deliver an architecturally strong experience that changes the city. But here, everything is in place, states Lars Nittve in one of the book’s essays. In this book, a close-up of the museum is drawn in words, sketches, and pictures.
