  Alvar Aalto Extension   The design of the connecting extension and its interwoven landscape was derived from a sympathetic approach to the existing architecture, Alvar Aalto’s approach to design and the greater natural context of Jyväskylä and Finland. With its gently undulating levels we have implemented our design to allow people to freely move through the space between both museums. People can enjoy a walk through the extension, on a variety of routes, enjoying the momentary glimpses that the building has to offer.    The main spaces are separated via the natural difference in levels between the Alvar Aalto Museum and the Museum of Central Finland. We imagined the route through the shop as a rising and falling walk through a natural forest. The lightweight vertical charred timber, a durable and virtually maintenance free material is used throughout, allowing the building to sit sympathetically within the site. ‘Stones’ in the form of con-crete entities provide separation of spaces and waypoints within the building. The existing river has been retained and highlighted as a focal point within the building, with the route crossing at various locations.
