Quite Japanese – yet so Finnish: Kaija + Heikki Siren

The Finnish architect couple Kaija Siren (1920–2001) and Heikki Siren (1918–2013) designed and realised several projects for Japan, a country much admired by numerous Finnish architects. The Studio exhibition examines Kaija and Heikki Siren’s long-term relationship with Japan, featuring the Sirens’ wooden architecture in both Finland and Japan. In addition to Kaija and Heikki Siren, Japanese architecture experts also have a say in the exhibition.
