Helsinki, Finland by Steven Holl

he Kiasma is a contemporary art museum, built between 1992 and 1998, in Helsinki, Finland. Its name “kiasma” is taken from the greek word for crossing. It was introduced by the building’s architect, the American Steven Holl and relates to the notions of intertwining and exchange which are at the root of his design concept aimed at physically connecting the building to the city and metaphorically creating a meeting place for fruitful cultural exchanges.
