Comments Off on Finnish pavilion sparks debate about the surge of asylum seekers in Europe

Curated by Marco Steinberg, the Finnish Pavilion takes on a simple and pragmatic boxy shape painted with a blue-white color scheme reminiscent of the country’s flag colors. The pavilion opened its doors last week with conversations that delved into current issues, housing solutions , and pathways to integration. Related: “Refugees Welcome” is the sharing economy’s response to the crisis in Europe “Today, Europe’s challenge is less about building new cities than about transforming existing ones to create a more balanced and inclusive society,” said Steinberg. “In this context, architecture must regain its capacity to shape not just the design of buildings, but also the design of social solutions. By combining these two capacities, architecture can help crystallize the principles of better housing.” The Finnish Pavilion’s competition exhibition will be supported by a series of events held throughout the Biennale. + Museum of Finnish Architecture Images via Museum of Finnish Architecture , © ALT architects
