Existing Tampere Art Museum in historic Granary building, with adjacent gardens and Pyynikintori Square below

Proposal to extend existing Tampere Art Museum and develop nearby Pyynikintori Square

A 'sibling' to the existing historic Granary building, placed on a stepped platform, creating spacious tall galleries below ground and a sense of open space above

Glass 'planks' set into the vertical faces of stepped concrete seating lets natural light below ground

Concrete paving continues inside, laid out in a grid that articulates the white steel framed facades

Under the roof lantern, birch timber stairs with white metal balustrades

Natural light shines through glass 'planks' into the main hall, which links to the existing Granary building below ground
