“In ancient Greece, the symposium (Greek: συμπόσιον symposion or symposio, from συμπίνειν sympinein, “to drink together”) was a part of a banquet that took place after the meal, when drinking for pleasure was accompanied by music, dancing, recitals, or conversation. Literary works that describe or take place at a symposium include two Socratic dialogues, Plato’s Symposium and Xenophon’s Symposium, as well as a number of Greek poems such as the elegies of Theognis of Megara. Symposia are depicted in Greek and Etruscan art that shows similar scenes.In modern usage, it has come to mean an academic conference or meeting such as a scientific conference. The equivalent of a Greek symposium in Roman society is the Latin convivium.”

Our time is faced with many challenges: climate change, overuse of resources, destruction of ecosystems etc. Tackling these challenges demands a paradigm change. We want to encourage open discussion that challenges the current paradigm among students of architecture, landscape architecture and interior architecture, young professionals from the field or anyone who is interested.

Welcome to the You Tell Me -Symposium. This is not one of your up tight seminars but rather an event that encourages discussion and participation. To help us start the paradigm change, promoters of sustainable construction Suoja ry and VAPAA collective among others will be sharing their thoughts. The more detailed program will be shared in this event later.

Our goal is that the good ideas will not stay just in the event but that we can rather launch a movement of discussion and peer learning in the field of architecture. We will also offer tools for introducing peer learning in your study or work environment. Join us and let’s change the world!

What: Symposium about the paradigm change of architecture
Where: Lapinlahden Lähde
When: Saturday 30.11. 12:00-16:00
Why: This is your chance to discuss your hopes and concerns in an open environment and find peer support for the paradigm change.

As winter robs the plant life of all its color, we all retreat to our minds’ gardens, where color, scent and warmth nurture us for the spring to come. On December 5th these gardens shall spring to life in our corporeal world when the guild of Architecture gathers to celebrate its 111th annual ball.

The festivities start underneath the pergola that is the Museum of Finnish Architecture. From there the journey takes us to Kiltasali where the main event is held. Once the night falls and the flowers of the garden withdraw to wait for the morning sun, the guests are transported to the afterparty and night swim, both in a secret location. And when the first rays of the sun bring the garden back to life we will convene for a refreshing herring breakfast at Siltasaari sauna.

What: The annual ball of the Guild of Architecture, Wähäjoulu
When: December 5th 2019
How much: Main event 85 € (students) or 100 € (alumni), morning swim 16 €, herring breakfast 15 €
Why. “Nothing is more important than gardening, and even that isn’t particularly important.” – a Chinese proverb
