Behold, the winning design for the Guggenheim's new outpost in Helsinki. Paris-based Moreau Kusunoki Architectes beat out the competition with a sweeping series of flexible pavilions around a glass-and-timber lighthouse-like structure.

The 11-member jury chose it because of the way it fit in with the surroundings at the site on Helsinki's South Harbor and how offered a vision for a more responsive building.

The husband-and-wife architecture team will be at the Guggenheim New York for a free public event on July 1.

The design was chosen from six finalists out of 1,715 entries from around the world.
