NEW FINNISH ARCHITECTURE: The New Generation
An event on young architects & architecture practices
Presented by the Architectural League and co-sponsored by the Irwin S. Chain School of Architecture
Young architects belong to a global generation, internationally conscious, experienced and informed. While many ambitious architects have worked and studied abroad, and there is ample evidence of global trends and concepts applied in local contexts, it seems they seek to maintain a critical and enthusiastic relationship with both past and present traditions. At the same time they are focusing their efforts on enhancing and crafting their own approaches in practice. With broadened horizons and heightened expectations, we would like to invite all of you to participate in an ambitious architectural future one that balances and connects bold goals with a humble quality, sensitive responsibility with fresh concepts, local traditions with new technology, common sense with elaborate skill, complex diversity with enlightened clarity, big ideas with intelligent details, good questions with relevant answers...
