Hope from Wood
Date and time10.9.2021 – 10.4.2022
The Museum of Finnish Architecture’s main exhibition this autumn and winter, Hope from Wood, looks at wooden architecture from the perspective of the hope it inspires. The multi-voiced and multi-faceted exhibition covers a time span extending from the early achievements of wood construction to the architecture of the future produced by artificial intelligence.
It brings together an interesting group of contributors addressing the exhibition theme in the form of, for instance, love letters, videos and music. In the era of climate crisis, much is expected from wood. One building material hardly solves all the challenges of building construction, but it is the spark that hopefully ignites a debate about major change.
The exhibition highlights how architects, as well as the entire construction industry, can have a say in what kind of future
people are heading for. Hope from Wood has been curated by cultural journalist Minna Joenniemi.
