Description

The main exhibition at the Museum of Finnish Architecture invites people of all ages interested in miniature worlds and architecture to project themselves into a world in miniature. An exhibition of scale models always leaves room for the imagination: exploring scale models does not require any prior skills.

In Scale – The World of Architectural Scale Models will feature skilfully built scale models of well-known architectural landmarks as well as of smaller architectural sites, built at different times. The scale models offer a glimpse into the work of architects and demonstrate their numerous uses. The scale models also stand as independent works, fascinating to study in their own right.

Architectural scale models provide an opportunity to reflect on past, present, and future architectural designs. It is in models that unrealized and imaginary designs take on a concrete form. The models encapsulate information about the placement of the buildings in their environment, the proportions, the sense of space and rhythm, and materiality.
