A plan to build a new Guggenheim museum on the Helsinki waterfront has been rejected by politicians in Finland.
The Helsinki city board voted eight to seven against putting the 140 million euro ($183 million) project forward for the city council's consideration.
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation proposed, in January, that it and the Finnish capital jointly develop a new contemporary art museum.
The foundation operates museums in New York, Berlin, Bilbao and Venice.
A fifth is currently under construction in Abu Dhabi.
