Planning a house, building an igloo

Just bought an apartment, which only needs a totally new floor plan to become your dream home? Always been wondering how to transform that old but charming red brick warehouse next door into modern apartments with latest energy saving solutions?

No  worries, as part World Design Capital Weekend 3rd – 5th February you can meet a bunch of architects ready to help you with all the questions in your mind. Architecture clinic at Artek on Saturday 4th February will provide you professional consultancy with both chronic and acute design problems.

Dwellings will be built out of candy and snow: other interesting, architecture related events include a candy-architecture workshop at the Cable factory on Friday evening  and an unique possibility to learn how to make a real igloo, guided by an ice sculptor. Igloos will be built at Highlight gallery on Saturday and Sunday.

I would also visit the the exhibition at the Wastelands-showroom and the Cloud City event at Merikortteli, where three room size balloons up in the air will show the scale of a planned new building. Both events can be visited from Friday to Sunday.  See you at the design weekend!
