Courtyard Guests

How does moving beyond a human-centered conception of the world affect design thinking in architectural practice and how could it translate into architectural aesthetics? In the summer of 2022 a Helsinki-based architecture collective meta architects  will build a sanctuary for microbes, plants, insects, birds and humans in the museum’s courtyard. This summer the project will appear in the museum’s courtyard in the form of plantings and composting. Welcome to join us!
