Show me the money

Finnish politics play havoc with Guggenheim’s Helsinki museum plans.

I was unsure of the design when first announced, but it is growing on me.

Finland has long been proud of its tradition in artistic and industrial design, boasting names such as architect Alvar Aalto, fashion house Marimekko as well as Nokia’s former mobile phone business, once the world leader.

We have works from all of these designers in our house!
