Abstract [en]

In 2017 Finland celebrated its 100 years of independence. In honour of this event the City of Turku, Finland’s oldest city and former capital, decided to gift Finland a History Museum to commemorate the event. This project’s purpose is to propose a location, a program and a building for the museum. I have chosen a location in Turku Harbour across the street from Turku Castle, a fortress that has been on the site since 13th century. Today the Castle functions as a museum and is the city’s most popular museum with about 140 000 visitors annually. On the south end of the site there are four log warehouses belonging to the Castle from 1880’s as well as in the north end a 1930’s brick building that also functions as a warehouse. The Museums brings together not only the history of Finland and that of the City of Turku, but also the different buildings on the site. The new building is in the middle of the site, it brings together the surrounding buildings by parasiting itself to the existing buildings and in that way connecting them.
