The six Guggenheim Helsinki competition finalists have a few busy months ahead of them. After being shortlisted out of 1,715 entries last month, the teams will travel to the museum site in Helsinki on January 14-16, 2015.
During the two-day visit, finalists will receive further technical information in the Stage Two brief as well as feedback on their initial proposals to begin further development. By the way, the names of the teams have been revealed but will not be matched to their proposals until the winner is announced in June 2015.
On January 16, Helsinki residents can hear directly from the finalist teams during a free public lecture event at 2 p.m. at the Scandic Grand Marina Hotel. Each team will present their philosophy, practices, and previous works.
