Gösta Museum, Mänttä, Finland
Family entered a competition to expand a museum for the largest private art collection in Finland.
“It’s this iconic brick building that sits on top of a small hill, surrounded by gorgeous lakes and forest and this amazing landscape," says Wong. But they didn't want to just make a new iconic building that would compete with the already existing one.
"We created a cultural and social space. It's this big ring, and the whole point was to create this new art square in the middle that the existing building was anchoring.”
They did not come out the winner. Still, Wong says he’s proud of the project.
