Finland Design: Study & Sketching Architecture & Landscape

Summer 2014

Finland is recognized internationally for the quality of its design and particularly admired relationship to nature. Design excellence in general is highly appreciated and widely supported to an extent practically unknown elsewhere. The interdisciplinary lectures, tours, and excursion will provide a broad introduction to Finnish design culture -- from saunas to urbanism, from forks to chairs, from medieval stone fortresses to unique wooden churches, from the traditional landscape to the formal garden, from national romanticism to modernism and the contemporary scene. The 2014 Program builds on seven previous and successful Summer Programs in Finland (all approved by the Departments of Architecture and Landscape Architecture and run through the Office of Global Education).​
