Amos Rex – 3D
Amos Anderson Art Museum is the largest private art museum in Finland. In 2013 the museum announced plans to build a subterranean annex under the Lasipalatsi plaza, located across the street from the museum's current premises on Yrjönkatu. The annex is estimated to cost 50 million euros and will also use facilities above the ground in the Lasipalatsi building. Helsinki City Board decided to reserve the plot for the museum in December 2013. The funding is provided by the Finnish-Swedish arts foundation Konstsamfundet. The museum plan was unanimously approved by the Helsinki City Council in May 2014 and the new annex was scheduled to open in 2017.
The new annex is designed by JKMM Architects whose other works include the new libraries in Turku and Seinäjoki and the Finnish pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.
The construction of the new museum started in January 2016. The museum, which will be called Amos Rex, is currently expected to open in 2018.
The renovation of the Glass Palace and Art Gallery Amos Rex's construction was started in January 2016. The concept brings a new museum building from the stage closer to the audience. Everything was created in 3D to get the right perspective and feel. It then got printed to this huge wall (about 10x20m) and it's located in Helsingfors, Finland. We want people to interact with the illusion and post pictures on instagram to spread the word about the new museum that is being built.
