Y Pavilion

Experimenting with Time and Space
Posted by Gestalten—08/2017

Seurasaari is an open-air museum on the outskirts of Helsinki, Finland, that has preserved the traditional Finnish way of life in a series of cabins and cottages. It’s a space to revisit the homestead values that defined Finland’s history. With the Y pavilion by Emmi Keskisarja & Janne Teräsvirta & Company Architects installed for this summer, the museum’s grounds are also a place for experimenting with our experiences of space and time. The piece is a tube of wooden planks that narrows into a finite point as visitors clamber from front to back. There's a mathematical basis driving the project’s design: Y is a symbol of the unknown in algebra, just as the project folds onto itself as a reference to time’s role as the variable that will shape how Finnish traditions are remembered and reframed as the years pass.
