Archinfo is one of the supporters of an international conference organised in Milan on the architecture of Finnish cultural buildings. A similar conference was held in Rome in October.

Amos Rex Art Museum and Helsinki Central Library Oodi were presented in an international conference in Rome in October 2018. Now the conference gets a new edition in Milan on 24 January. The aim of the event is to foster international cooperation in the field of architecture between Finland and Italy. Read the interview of Arianna Callocchia, architect and curator of the event: Finnish cultural buildings through the eyes of an Italian architect. 

Architect Asmo Jaaksi of JKMM Architects will illustrate the Amos Rex project as a dialogue between the past and present. The building offers the citizens of Helsinki, in addition to a new museum of art, a newly opened modernistic cinema theatre as well as an uplifted urban space with a strong character.

Architect Antti Nousjoki of ALA Architects will present the newly opened Helsinki Central Library Oodi, which has provided the capital city of Finland with a new versatile and flexible urban interior space dedicated to learning, educational activities and reading.

The conference is promoted by Foundation of Chamber of Architects of the Province of Milan, in cooperation with the Embassy of Finland in Italy and Association of Finnish Architects’ Offices ATL. The event is organised with the support of Archinfo Finland, City of Helsinki, Finnish Association of Architects SAFA and Italian Council of Architects.
