Makers of Landscapes -exhibition at the Museum of Finnish Architecture

Makers of Landscapes -exhibition opens on June at the Museum of the Architecture. The exhibition presents the multidimensional and forward-looking professionalism of landscape architecture through twelve of its practitioners. It is based on the book "Maiseman tekijät" ("Makers of Landscapes" published by Aalto ARTS Books 2019).

Close the loops

Making things and manufacturing processes produce pollution and environmental degradation, draining natural resources.

Printable solar cell technologies for smart buildings

Imagine a solar cell that could be integrated into modern buildings without compromising their aesthetics. These cells can be made of abundant materials like titanium dioxide or carbon nanoparticles, which are deposited on conducting surfaces with printing technologies.

Hack our habitat

Aggressive urbanisation is straining our ecosystem. Rising construction volume causes massive demand for energy-intensive construction materials, and construction already accounts for 39 per cent of the global CO2 emissions.
