Everything and Nothing – Architects Kaija + Heikki Siren

KAMU’s special exhibition, Everything and Nothing – Architects Kaija + Heikki Siren is the first in Finland to present a comprehensive review of the Sirens’ architecture. The architects’ design work from the 1950s and 1960s is presented with a particular focus on their works in Espoo: those featuring prominently include the internationally renowned Otaniemi Chapel and the experimental terraced houses and schools in the garden city of Tapiola. 

30 October 2013–
A THOUSAND STORIES ABOUT ESPOO

The exhibition covers Espoo in five different periods and places from the Stone Age seal hunters in Bosmalm, medieval farmers in Mankby, and the gentry and common people in Alberga to factory workers in Kauklahti and urban life in the suburbs. The exhibition also explains how Espoo was born, who the people living there are and how Espoo became the city it is today.
