Clarion Hotel Helsinki opened its doors in October 2016 after several years of planning and a few setbacks. In the earlier plans the hotel was the shape of a cross and had as many as 33 floors. In the end the amount of floors was reduced down to 16 and the controversial cross-like design was replaced by two sleek and modern towers designed by Davidsson Tarkela Architects.
The construction began in April 2015 and we documented the entire construction project with a timelapse camera. Watch the video to see Helsinki's newest landmark rise from the ground to the sky!
