The Finnish Architecture. Review 2018 exhibition now in the Gallery at the Alvar Aalto Museum presents a juried selection of recent projects showcasing new trends and the high standards of excellence in Finnish architecture.

The 16 shortlisted projects on display offer examples of recent accomplishments in high-level contemporary planning, renovation, and sustainable, responsible design. The featured shortlist spans a wide cross-section of diverse project types ranging from small-scale sites to large-scale housing developments and public buildings.

 “The review is a gateway to exploring high-level Finnish architectural and renovation projects, opening up new perspectives and stimulating discourse on upcoming trends in architecture” says Tommi Lindh, Managing Director of the Alvar Aalto Foundation.


The projects are:

  • Arabiankatu 8 Housing Block, Helsinki (B & M Architects)
  • Hiirenporras and Kissankita Housing Block, Helsinki (Anttinen Oiva Architects)
  • Kampin Helmi Senior Housing, Helsinki (Kirsti Sivén & Asko Takala Architects)
  • HEKA Koirasaarentie 36 Affordable Housing, Helsinki (Anttinen Oiva Architects)
  • Smoke Sauna, Asikkala (Tuomo Siitonen Architects)
  • Lonna Sauna, Helsinki (OOPEAA Office for Peripheral Architecture)
  • Paul’s Church of Tartu Restoration, Estonia (Kari Järvinen and Merja Nieminen, architects SAFA)
  • Töölö Church Restoration, Helsinki (Käpy and Simo Paavilainen Architects)

  • Dipoli Restoration, Espoo (ALA Architects)
  • Ring Rail Line: Airport, Helsinki-Vantaa (PES-Architects)

The exhibition was selected by a jury of architecture professionals chaired by the Portuguese architect Gonçalo Byrne, recently a member of the jury for the Mies van der Rohe Award. The other two members of the Biennial Review jury are architect Maire Mattinen and architect and critic Anni Vartola.

The Biennial Review has been presenting top achievements in contemporary Finnish architecture in an exhibition and accompanying publication since 2002. The exhibition publication, FINNISH ARCHITECTURE. REVIEW 2018 will be on sale in the Alvar Aalto Museum’s Alvar Aalto Shop throughout the exhibition period.

The Review gives local visitors a chance to see some of the most notable examples of recent Finnish architecture, while also making it better known to international audiences. After debuting at the Museum of Finnish Architecture in Helsinki in summer 2018, the exhibition is touring Finland and several other countries. Review 2018 has been designed by Hanna Anonen and Klaus Aalto and is organized by the Museum of Finnish Architecture, the Finnish Association of Architects SAFA and the Alvar Aalto Foundation.
