Museum Musicology


ARCHITECTURE

The building, designed by Woldemar Baeckman, is one of the most original Finnish creations of the 1960s. Surfaces of glass and concrete, funnel-shaped pillars, and the atrium garden in the centre of the building provide a unique setting for the museum. The austere, yet exiting design of the building attracts visitors interested in architecture from all over of the world.

Woldemar Baeckman:
"One of the most interesting assignments I have had, and one to which I devoted my whole heart" ... "at first, the untreated concrete surfaces cauzed amazement in quite a few, but nowadays it is not possible for anyone to think they could be any different" (Pekka Pakkala: 'Woldemar Baeckman 1911-1994'. Finnish Architectural Review 94 (1997) No. 2)
