Alvar Aalto Researchers Network
The Alvar Aalto Researchers Network is an international collaboration serving as a channel for discussion and cooperation between Alvar Aalto researchers.
The (Ever)green Alvar Aalto Researchers’ Network Seminar will be held on 6–7 May 2021 as a two-day virtual event based in Pori, Finland.
We will hear keynote lectures from Ph.D Antonello Alici, architect, FAIA, F.US Gunny Harboe, architect SAFA Tapani Mustonen and architect SAFA Teemu Tuomi along with 30 presentations from the authors of the Call for papers.
Registration is open now. Early bird fee available until March 31 2021. Book your tickets here.
The Alvar Aalto Academy invites researchers and practitioners to the seminar to explore the theme (Ever)green Alvar Aalto. The theme prompts us to ponder from a variety of perspectives the different aspects of Alvar Aalto’s architectural production, working methods and architectural thinking, and their relevance to the architectural design and culture of the 2020s.
The theme will be approached from pragmatic, theoretical, metaphorical or cultural viewpoints, which are particularly relevant when we are talking about the future of buildings:
The exemplary standards set by Alvar Aalto’s architecture, his contribution to the ideologies and values of 20th-century modernism, and the global significance of Aalto’s buildings, town plans and designs – as well as the urgent demand to dramatically diminish the environmental impact of construction – make it imperative to analyse, question and redefine architectural sustainability from pragmatic, theoretical, metaphorical, as well as cultural viewpoints.
The Alvar Aalto Researchers’ Network is an international collaboration that serves as a channel for discussion and cooperation between people doing research on Alvar Aalto. The network is managed by the Alvar Aalto Academy, which organizes multi-disciplinary, academic seminars in collaboration with various partners.
