Wood architecture park: Illuminated Canopy

Show map

The first construction to be completed in the Wood Architecture Park was the Illuminated Canopy by Kengo Kuma. The canopy also serves the practical purpose of sheltering people waiting for a taxi in front of the Sibelius Hall.

Designer: Kengo Kuma
Completed in: 2005

The slatted canopy consists of narrow strips of wood, through which daylight is filtered in changing patterns of shade and light. The fastenings and guttering are of steel, and the canopy is protected by acrylic.

At night, the canopy is illuminated by LED uplights with changing colours, imitating the play of aurora borealis.

The canopy was constructed by students of the Salpaus Further Education college
