芬兰,赫尔辛基,Amos Rex博物馆 / JKMM建筑设计公司

在芬兰的首都赫尔辛基,JKMM建筑设计公司为我们呈上了Amos Rex博物馆——一个将城市公共空间转化成波状地形的地下艺术博物馆。博物馆的新现代式建筑作为20世纪30年代地标式建筑的Lasipalatsi玻璃宫殿的延伸建筑,而Lasipalatsi建筑也因为是此次建筑项目的一部分而得以被翻新。建设过程中,从Lasipalatsi广场下面掏空了13000立方米的地下岩石,掏空出来的空间构成博物馆的主要展览空间,这些由一系列的圆屋顶和天窗覆盖的地下展览空间,变成了一道新的城市风景。

Amos Rex博物馆的艺术作品涵盖范围广泛,从最新的现代艺术到20世纪现代主义艺术,乃至古代文化艺术作品皆有陈列。博物馆馆长希望过去、现在和未来可以在这地下和地上的空间中创造出一种独特而惊人的碰撞体验。

JKMM建筑公司的创始合伙人Asmo Jaaksi表示:“将芬兰20世纪30年代的领先建筑之一——Lasipalatsi建筑作为Amos Rex建筑项目的一部分进行整合真是一次令人感动的体验。通过给Lasipalatsi建筑赋予一个大胆的新层次,我们感觉是在巧妙地连接过去与现在。我们希望这个过去与现在的连接可以造就一个无缝的延伸和一个令人激动的承载时间的博物馆空间。

Amos Rex博物馆是自Amos Anderson艺术博物馆重新翻修设计而成,Amos Anderson艺术博物馆是于1965年以来赫尔辛基首屈一指的私人博物馆。为了适应实践中的变化,并满足21世纪现代艺术的展览需求,Amos Anderson艺术博物馆的托管人推断到:“比起博物馆改建后的新闻办公室那激动人心的办公处,一个新的可以提供全新艺术体验的场地要显得更合时宜。”而作为芬兰保存最完好的功能主义建筑,位于Amos Anderson艺术博物馆附近的Lasipalatsi建筑,被指定为Amos Rex博物馆的一个新的去处。


in finald’s capital helsinki, JKMM architects presents amos rex — an underground art museum which transforms the city’s public space into an undulating landscape. the new contemporary architecture of the museum serves as an extension to the landmark 1930’s lasipalatsi building, refurbished as part of the project. 13,000 cubic metres of rock had been excavated from beneath the city’s lasipalatsi square to shape the museum’s main gallery space, topped with a series of domes and skylights which form the new urban landscape.

the artwork exhibited at amos rex ranges from the newest contemporary art to 20th-century modernism to ancient cultures. museum curators hope for the past, present and future to produce unique experiences and surprising encounters beneath and above ground.

asmo jaaksi, founding partner of JKMM commented: ‘_integrating one of finland’s architecturally pioneering 1930s buildings – lasipalatsi – as part of the amos rex project has been a moving experience. by adding a bold new layer to lasipalatsi, we feel we are connecting past with present. we would like this to come across as a seamless extension as well as an exciting museum space very much of its time_.’

amos rex has its origins in the amos anderson art museum, which has been helsinki’s leading private museum since 1965. to meet changes in the practice and display of contemporary art in the 21st century, the trustees of the amos anderson art museum concluded that a new venue would be better suited for providing new art experiences than the museum’s existing accommodation in converted newspaper offices. the nearby lasipalatsi building, one of finland’s best-preserved examples of 1930s functionalist architecture was identified as a new home for the museum.
