posted on July 2nd 2015 in News

You´re all welcome to take part in the next Alvar Aalto Symposium 2015, which will take place in Jyväskylä, 7.-9. August, 2015.

Alvar Aalto Symposium is an international forum for discussion on contemporary architecture. It is a triennial event that brings professionals from around the world together to engage in current topics in architecture.
The symposium’s theme challenges the speakers and participants to examine architecture from the perspective of doing. The aim is to shed light on how architects envision what they do and how the process is shaped by the approach that they take to their work. The process of creating architcture will be explored through four different perspectives: DIGITAL, LOCAL, MATERIAL and SOCIAL.
Anssi Lassila, director and founder of OOPEAA Office for Peripheral Architecture, is the Chair of the Alvar Aalto Symposium this year. Through the selected theme and invited speakers, Lassila opens a discussion about the terms of making architecture.
Amongst the speakers and moderators you will meet internationally renowned architects and practitioners from different parts of the world, such as Greg Lynn (Greg Lynn FORM, California-USA), David Basulto (ArchDaily, Chile), Henriette Vamberg (Gehl Architects, Danemark), Rahul Mehotra (RMA Architects, India), Liu Xiaodu (Urbanus, China), Raul Pantaleo (Tamassociati, Italy), Carin Smuts (Carin Smuts Architects, South Africa) and many more.

The event is organized by the Alvar Aalto Foundation in partnership with the Museum of Finnish Architecture – Helsinki, ArchInfo – Architecture Information Centre Finland, the Alvar Aalto Museum – Jyväskylä and the City of Jyväskylä.
