Construction gobbles up half of the world’s natural resources. Collaboration between scientists, designers, architects, the public sector and companies generates ideas that can make living environments and the construction industry more sustainable.

This exhibition showcases diverse holistic approaches from Aalto University to community planning. What kind of architecture best suits the delicate Arctic areas? What amazing designs can we build out of wood?

What does culturally sensitive and planet-centric architecture and design mean? What new design tools have we developed to take these perspectives into account?

Join us on September 8–29, 2021 to see the nine Loving Environments exhibitions at the Otaniemi campus or experience them virtually:
