PERSPECTIVES. HEIKKINEN-KOMONEN ARCHITECTS.
(7.6.2017 - 3.9.2017)



Perspectives gives a voice to Heikkinen-Komonen Architects, who will present a selection of their recent projects from the 2000s. The centrepiece is an architecton based on the concrete maze found in the Center for Systems Biology in Dresden, with photographs of architectural sites projected on the walls around it.
 
The projected images offer museum visitors a new kind of immersive experience of the featured sites. The perspectival kaleidoscope of simple projected architectural images creates a Palladian labyrinthine scenography and a cinematic reinterpretation of the original architecture.
 
 
Perspectives marks the continuation of the Architect’s Voice series at the Museum of Finnish Architecture, which presents the work of contemporary Finnish architects in shows co-curated with the featured architects. It hands the curatorial reins to the architects, who are given carte blanche to decide exactly how they wish to present their creative vision to the public.
 
Perspectives is curated by Heikkinen-Komonen Architects, a practice formed in 1979 and known for famous projects such as the Heureka Science Centre, Rovaniemi Airport, the Finnish Embassy in Washington, Hämeenlinna Provincial Archive and Kangasala House. Heikkinen-Komonen Architects are additionally the winners of numerous architectural competition and awards.
