Our planet and living environment are facing irreversible changes due to megatrends such as globalization, climate change and urbanization. Thoughtful planning of cities can play a key role in preventing and alleviating many problems. Architects should therefore receive proper training to tackle the complex challenges of the future.
Curated by architect and Vice Dean Saija Hollmén, the exhibition highlights two of Aalto University’s inter-disciplinary, collaborative ventures.
The exhibition presents a selection of the students’ past projects – including a few realized plans – and revisits their journeys into new cultures. The presented examples show that global problems are forcing young architects to tackle ever more complex design challenges. The show also highlights their professional evolution into experts whose work is driven by a code of morals and ethical responsibility. For many of the young participants, working as a member of a multidisciplinary team in a foreign culture has been an important turning point in their careers.
