”I really like how the school became a safe place where you can talk about anything you feel and need always having a reaction to thequestions. Also it’s nice that this school was a combination of different activities changing all the time.”

Fill This Space
Fill This Space is a five-day long summer school for all 16–20-years-olds interested in architecture and the built environment. It gives you an opportunity to discuss issues related to architecture and the built environment together with museum and architecture professionals and architecture students. The school programme is planned according to the wishes and interests of the participants. Participants will also have access to the studio space on the first floor of the Museum of Finnish Architecture that is open to the public. Summer Schools are held in Finnish and in English. Participation is free. You don’t need previous experience, knowledge or skills to participate – come as you are!
”The sketchbooks, excursions, and massing project were hands-on and easy to actively participate in. The environment felt very open and relaxed. It was also really nice to have had the option to attend summer school in English.”

“I think it’s a great way to bring young people together in an educational way without making it a burden. I haven’t seen many courses organized like this and I think it’s nice to give an opportunity for those who are interested to join.”
