Helsinki’s Amos Rex museum reaches new heights and new audiences

Artist’s conception: JKMM Architects

Amos Rex is an art museum chosen by the BBC as one of Europe’s most innovative new architectural spaces for 2018. It’s located in Lasipalatsi (Glass Palace), an iconic 1936 functionalist-style building lined with tall windows.

The museum opened its doors in the end of August 2018, attracting 10,000 visitors during its first week. The opening exhibition by Japanese art collective teamLab features immersive digital installations that make the visitor a key part of the artwork.

The Lasipalatsi building also houses offices, shops, restaurants and the renovated Bio Rex movie theatre. Amos Rex helps the edifice reach new heights.
