After Milan (IT), Belgrade (RS), Saint-Étienne (FR) and Ljubljana (SL), the Human Cities touring exhibition arrives at Helsinki (FI) on September 12 till September 29, 2017.
Human Cities_Challenging the City Scale 2014-2018 is a project aiming to improve the quality of public spaces by involving and activating cultural and civic participants. Lead by Cité du design Saint-Étienne, 12 partners from cities around Europe form the platform for interdisciplinary exchanges. The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
The travelling Human Cities exhibition in 2016-2018 presents the process and results of co-creating activities in the experimental labs of Human Cities partners in their cities. Together with its experimentation lab –the School as a Service project in Otaniemi-, Aalto University contributes with the findings of the Exit School of Architecture project. This showcases new Finnish architecture rising from a shared local identity. It analyses the role of collaboration in Nordic Noir architecture. The exhibition contains recently completed works by Finnish architects and a selection of diploma works by recent graduates of Aalto University; with connotations to The Helsinki School of Photography, a Finnish brand with a similar philosophy in the field of photography.
Save the date: 12 September 18:00 – Human Cities exhibition opening.
