Students from the studio course at Aalto University’s Department of Architecture analyzed the relationship between architectural photography and the material, spatial and experiential reality of architecture.

The exhibition presents the students’ reinterpretations of 15 well-known architectural sites in the Helsinki metropolitan area.

The buildings selected for the analysis were designed in the 1980s and 1990s, and each of them received much media attention at the time they were completed, as well as the status of an acclaimed example of Finnish contemporary architecture.
