We produce the temporary exhibitions at the Museum of Finnish Architecture. We also produce exhibitions in cooperation with others and organise exhibition exchange activities nationally and internationally.
Picks from the top of fresh Finnish architecture have been displayed in biennial exhibitions and accompanying books from 2002 on. The biennial reviews are organised by the Museum of Finnish Architecture, the Alvar Aalto Foundation and the Finnish Association of Architects SAFA. A jury of experts is appointed for each review to select the works to be displayed.Biennial Reviews
