OPEN CALL

Summer 2018 will mark the eighth biennial review of Finnish architecture showcasing a jury-selected line-up of top recent achievement in Finnish architecture. This international showcase will include an exhibition, book, frame programme, and web coverage. The exhibition will debut at Helsinki’s Museum of Finnish Architecture in June 2018.

Whether you are an architect or simply interested in architecture, we invite your nominations. To qualify, the project must be a building, landscaping project or urban plan created over the past two years by a Finnish architect either in Finland or abroad. Projects undertaken in Finland by non-Finnish architects also qualify.

Qualifying projects must date from July 1, 2015-June 30, 2017 (this means the completion date for buildings and landscaping projects, the approval date for urban plans).

Kindly send in your nominations by May 31, 2017.
