It is time for the most fantastic trip of the year: Lund excursion! Come hear more about this amazing adventure at the guild afterworks on Monday.

Guild’s Nordic collaboration will culminate in visiting our Swedish friends. This year the Lund excursion will offer something to everyone from architecture students to interior and landscape architecture. During the trip we will visit for example the landscape architecture school in Alnarp and the university of Lund that has architecture and industrial design in the same department.

The excursion will be organized 10.-13.5. You can join the trip later or leave earlier if necessary or stay longer on your own. All attendees will book their own transportation and there is a 100 euro compensation travel costs per person. We will stay at local students’ apartments.

The trip will begin at the Copenhagen airport from where we will take a train to Sweden. We will spend the day at Alnarp and head to Lund in the evening. Saturday we will spend with the local students. On Sunday we will chill in Lund and those who have to can already head back to Helsinki. On Monday those flying back to Helsinki in the evening can spend the day in Copenhagen.

The sign up for the excursion opens on Monday at 19.00 at the Guild afterworks. The sign up form will be posted to this event. There are spots for the first 10 people.

”To guarantee a perfect taste experience, different types of drinks are best enjoyed in their optimal temperatures. Sparkling wine should be enjoyed chilled, so a tiny bit colder than regular wine, but too much cold can also destroy all the flavors of the wine. The best temperature varies depending on the sparkling wine, but for a traditional white sparkling wine it’s 5-7 degrees celsius.”

Wappu is coming and it’s time for us to awaken our taste buds for sparkling wine! Come together with Inkubio and the Guild of Architecture to enjoy the spring evening with some bubbly.
