Museum of Finnish Architecture and Aalto University Department of Architecture
Online event

Roger Boltshauser, a Swiss architect and visiting professor at ETH Zurich, is a pioneer in earth structures. Although the technology has been attracting widespread interest, there are only a few realized projects so far. In his lecture, Boltshauser illustrates the possibilities of soil in construction.

“Swiss architect Roger Boltshauser has used rammed earth technology in large construction projects. Currently, many are interested in using soil in construction, but there are few completed projects”, states Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.

Architecture Speaks is an international lecture series curated by Professor Jenni Reuter and organised jointly by Aalto University Department of Architecture and the Museum of Finnish Architecture. This year’s lectures reflect on how during the pandemic, our way of life has slowed down, and we have stopped to think about the impact that spaces have on their users and the patina of living brought to the spaces by the users.

The lecture is free of charge for everyone. Pre-registration is required. More information about the event through this link (opens in a new tab).
