Exhibition: Interplay of Cultures at The Museum of Finnish Architecture

Celebrating 25 Years of Education in Global Sustainability & Humanitarian Development at Aalto University

26.9.2018 – 24.2.2019

Interplay of Cultures – the Museum of Finnish Architecture’s leading autumn exhibition – celebrates the 25th anniversary of education in global sustainability and humanitarian development at Aalto University, while also raising concern regarding the current state of world affairs. 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.
