Gösta Serlachius Museum extension by MX_SI in Mänttä (Finland)

A work of the Barcelona studio MX_SI (Mara Gabriela Partida, Héctor Mendoza, and Boris Bezán), the new extensión of the Gösta Serlachius contemporary museum in the Finnish city of Mänttä has opened its doors. The design won the 2011 competition against 578 other entries, and in 2013 Spain’s national council of architects’ associations gave the team its International Spanish Architecture Award, in the competition proposals section. The new volume rises to form the museum’s new entrance square beside the Joennimei House, the old residence of Gösta Serlachius (1876-1942), a paper manufacturer whose art collection has been on view in the building since 1945. The extension presents a frame defining its geometry and allows transversal access through the foyer. The MX_SI project includes a bridge to connect the site of the museum to Taavetinsaari Island, thereby gaining space for outdoor displays.
