'Swiss architects Christian Scheidegger and Jürg Keller question the prevailing ways of designing living spaces in their projects. This leads to new types of floor plans and the use of spaces', states Jenni Reuter, Associate Professor at Aalto University Department of Architecture and curator of the lecture series.

Architecture Speaks! Is a lecture series curated by Associate Professor Jenni Reuter and organized by Aalto University Department of Architecture and Museum of Finnish Architecture. During the pandemic, our way of life has slowed down, and we have stopped to think about the impact that spaces have on their users and the patina of living brought to the spaces by the users. The importance of handicrafts has become prominent. We long for precise quality of work and tangible materials. Six professionals in the field of architecture from various backgrounds are invited to share their thoughts and ideas on current trends in architecture.
