12th International Alvar Aalto Symposium
Crafted - the Ingredients of Architecture
The 12th International Alvar Aalto Symposium will discuss the many ways in which architecture today is crafted through the careful consideration of technology, environment and human skill. Designers, builders and thinkers from a wide range of international practices will present buildings and projects that emphasize the specificity of the contexts in which they work. Our aim is to explore the potential of an architecture that carries the particular properties, practices and techniques of its location through to the smallest detail.
10-12 August, Jyvaskyla, Finland
