Garden Futures: Designing with Nature

Museum of Finnish Architecture, Helsinki

  • 10.11.2023–31.3.2024

The first collaborative exhibition between the Museum of Finnish Architecture and Design Museum sprawls across both museums.

 

Garden Futures: Designing with Nature is the first collaborative exhibition between the Museum of Finnish Architecture and Design Museum on their journey towards a new architecture and design museum. It will sprawl across both museums, taking over the exhibition spaces on Kasarmikatu and Korkeavuorenkatu.

The exhibition is divided into two museum buildings, both of which can be visited with one ticket on the same day. You can start your visit and purchase the ticket from either museum. Weekly guided tours are organized for the exhibition in both the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the Design Museum.

Approaching gardens through architecture, design, and art, Garden Futures: Designing with Nature is a touring exhibition by Vitra Design Museum, the Wstenrot Foundation, and the Nieuwe Instituut, with Helsinki being its first stop.

The Garden Futures exhibition demonstrates that even private gardens are interconnected with society in various ways. The ongoing transformation invites us to view gardens from a different perspective: rather than as romantic escapes, they are now examined through activism, social justice, and biodiversity. The exhibition highlights, for example, how many of the familiar plants in Western gardens have deep roots in colonialism. 

The exhibition showcases not only design and landscape architecture related to gardens but also artworks that explore the concept of gardens. Local examples and projects support the international perspective of the touring exhibition.
