Exhibition Human Cities/ Challenging the City Scale 2014-2018

Milan (IT) – Belgrade (RS)- Saint-Etienne (FR)- Ljubljana (SL) – Helsinki (FI) 13-29 Sept. 2017 – Bilbao (ES) – Ciezsyn (PL) – Graz (AT) – Tallinn (EST)

Human Cities/ Challenging the City Scale is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. It is a platform of interdisciplinary exchanges with 12 partners led by Cité du Design Saint-Etienne. The project aims to improve the quality of public spaces by involving and activating cultural and civic participants. The travelling Human Cities exhibition in ­2016-2018 presents the process and results of co-creating activities in the experimental Labs of Human Cities partners.

Together with its experimentation lab, the School as a Service project in Otaniemi, Aalto University contributes with the findings of the Exit School of Architecture project. This showcases new Finnish architecture rising from a shared local identity. It analyses the role of collaboration in Nordic Noir architecture. The exhibition contains recently completed works by Finnish architects and a selection of diploma works by recent graduates of Aalto University, with allusions to the Helsinki School of Photography, a Finnish brand with a similar philosophy in the field of photography.

The exhibition opening is on the 12th of September at 18:00.
