Finnish Architecture Biennial Review 2018

Finnish Architecture 2018 is an in-depth biennial review of the most recent Finnish architectural trends, demanding restoration projects and interesting new housing designs.

Representing examples of the best Finnish architecture in the past years, 16 entries have been selected to the Finnish Architecture Biennial Review 2018. The exhibition is on display at the Museum of Finnish Architecture from June 13th to Sept. 16th, 2018.

The selected projects have been curated by an international jury chaired by the Portuguese architect Gonçalo Byrne. His fellow jury members have been architects Maire Miettinen and Anni Vartola.

The Finnish Architecture Biennial Review is organised by the Museum of Finnish Architecture in collaboration with the Finnish Association of Architects and the Alvar Aalto Foundation.
