The Alvar Aalto Foundation and the Museum of Central Finland in Jyväskylä have launched an international architectural competition for museum area in Jyväskylä’s Ruusupuisto. The competition is for the design of an extension connecting the Alvar Aalto Museum and the Museum of Central Finland, and the surrounding outdoor area. The aim is to develop these two key Aalto works to form an attractive, high-quality museum centre and to improve the shared use and functionality of the museums’ premises.
The public design competition for an extension for the Alvar Aalto Museum and the Museum of Central Finland opens on 29 June, 2015, and ends on 30 October, 2015. The competition winner will be announced on Alvar Aalto’s birthday on 3 February, 2016.
