The project Kiasma is a contemporary art museum to Helsinki by Steven Holl. Opened in 1996 and covering an area of ??12,000 m² is inserted into Töölö Bay, with works coming as Aalto Finlandia Hall and the railway station Saarinen. The project is structured through a ramp that connects the entrance hall with spaces expositi-you. The human scale, according to the architect, has been a constant in matching dimensions of the different elements of the project, together with the treatment of natural and artificial light. The museum concept arises from the interaction of the dough to build the geometry of the city and the landscape in the area, promoting the culture curve suggestive line "that connects the building with the Hall FINLAND, so it seems a natural line Suggest new architectural relationships in the future urban development. Though a very contemporary architect (if there is clear is that this works Holl, for him there is no past or future, are the present and as such must act), no symbolism used in his compositions, but the sensation (the?) machine provoke sensations symbolize impossible burden without losing meaning and / or significance. anchor the work does not pretend to their place of origin by localism, save, and very subtly with the use of light typical of northern latitudes, which is used mainly for conceptual reasons to anchor different architecture in place. This building Holl earned the title of master of light.'s the best material that used to cause those feelings. Light can even create a sense as physical as the tearing of the interior, giving them meaning or changing it if I had it.'s why Holl gives much importance to light, water, touch materials, etc., because they are the elements used to create the sensation (the?) machine. Holl not meant to show us how things are, what the building wants us to learn how they are feeling and inhabiting. works in Holl, the three-dimensional static reference becomes a five-dimensional reference, with the inclusion of two dimensions such as time and perception, which are intertwined with each other through the light and space, which act as catalysts. According Reigl Alois, art historian of the century, the "haptic" is one that isolates the object in the perceptual field while the "visual perception" unifies them all in a continuous space. In a traditional museum haptic perception is dominant. Every object has its field of influence, almost completely independent of the others. Holl wants cause optical perception, creating a large container in which the works are not known separately, but together. According to Gestalt psychology, perception an object is done at once, without dividing it into parts, with great importance in understanding the context. Perhaps what Holl wanted was to create a context in which the works of art, not only did not lose or desentendieran its initial meaning but were enhanced by the building itself ... in Kiasma. Entities shown themselves directly, in a phenomenological sense vulgar, but need an effort to reach the phenomenological sense formal. The museum aims we perform such work. Others aspects are very important to Holl the materials it creates. The curved roof of the building is made of solid zinc with some titanium and copper. has been patinated to emulate the effect for about 5 years. surface darkens slightly with time. vertical elevations are of aluminum, which is resistant to the sea climate Helsinki. They are aligned using a horizontal movement, giving a surface which refract light due to aluminum. aluminum walls allow develop a patina natural. elevation north elevation south and have reddish surfaces. These are made of acid red, brass textures, treated with heat and chemicals. Kiasma has lots of glass, seems inviting daylight to enter the building. In darkness, they serve as light emitters, showing the building.
