The architecture students of the University of Westminster and Aalto University in Finland co-operate in building a wooden tea pavilion in front of the Design Museum. The tea pavilion opens on the 3rd of July and stays open until the end of Helsinki Design Week on the 15th of September. During this time anyone can come to the pavilion to eat and drink their own picnic meals.

The tea pavilion celebrates the anniversary of the diplomatic relationship between Finland and Great Britain. May marked a hundred years from the time that Britain acknowledged Finland’s independence. The pavilion was produced by the Finnish Institute in London.
