In 1995 an exhibition called Animal Architecture opened at the Museum of Finnish Architecture. The exhibition was designed by Professor Juhani Pallasmaa, together with a work team of zoologists, and it was regarded worldwide as a unique collaboration.

The questions raised by the exhibition about the coexistence of man and other species are still painfully topical today: most animals are unable to adapt to the almost ubiquitous human modification of the environment.

It is a good time to ask Juhani Pallasmaa, what he now thinks about animal architecture. Alonzo Heino, a doctoral researcher in aesthetics at the University of Helsinki, who is familiar with the relationship between human skills, art, technology and nature, will discuss these themes with Pallasmaa.

Studio is a small, admission-free exhibition space located on the ground floor of the Museum of Finnish Architecture.

Meet Alonzo Heino at the exhibition on Thursday 1 September, 2022, 4 p.m.–6 p.m.
