Swiss architect Peter Zumthor and the Finnish, internationally renowned architect Juhani Pallasmaa will meet as part of Aalto University's Architecture Speaks! lecture series on Wednesday, January 17 at 6 pm in Dipoli’s Kaleva Hall.

Zumthor is known as an architect who favours natural materials, and his most famous works include the Therme Vals spa in Switzerland from 1996. Juhani Pallasmaa has published numerous articles on architecture and architecture theory. His most famous works are the Rovaniemi Art Museum and the renovation of the Finnish Institute in France.

“Peter Zumthor is a living legend of architecture and it is a great honor to get him to Finland. We will hear a debate focusing on the core of architecture added with philosophical reflection on the being of architecture”, says professor Jenni Reuter, who has produced the lecture series.

Architecture Speaks! is a series of debates that has brought several international guests to Finland to present interesting aspects of architecture. The lecture series has continued already two years and it is organized together with the Museum of Finnish Architecture.

The event is free of charge. The lecture will be in English.

Date: January 17, 2018 at 6 pm.
