The cruise business is booming, and a huge number of expedition cruisers take passengers to the most remote locations on Earth. Europe’s largest lake district with pure water and the natural beauty of the world’s largest archipelago are still missing from the cruise maps. Therefore, the Archilux takes its guests on an adventure to the sensitive nature in Finland. Environmental friendliness has been taken into consideration in every detail, from power production and lightweight structures to everything that happens onboard.

The ship concept was originally designed for Finland’s 100th anniversary, as part of a showroom for Finnish inventions. The ship encourages Finns to look at what is close to them, and also raises awareness of the environment.

Working group: Veikko Ahola, Chun Ip, Jaakko Koivurova, Matti Raski, Jeremias Tilander, Argo Sannik (all Aalto University).
