The Singthrough of the Guild’s songbook Musta Neliö 30.11.
It’s almost Wähäjoulu! Time to warm up for the big day by singing!
The 3rd Edition of the songbook of the Guild of Architecture Musta Neliö was published in 2020, and it’s time to see what it holds inside it. We’re singing through the whole book at once!
It’s going to be a long night, but the singers are being taken care of by serving them some glögi to lubricate their throats. You’re welcome to come drop by even if you can’t stay for the whole night.
The 3rd edition of Musta Neliö can be purchased at the event for the price of 6€.
WHAT? The Singthrough of the Guild’s songbook Musta Neliö
WHERE? Pelitila, Jämeräntaival 3
WHEN? Tuesday 30.11 at 17–22
WHY? Because singing is the new black!

Have you heard of Dipoli parties? Or have you already forgotten what Dipoli is?

Now it is the time to experience that mystical building, because the biggest and most spectacular pre-Christmas celebration is right around the corner! 

The traditional Aalto Afterparty slept in this year, but woke up just in time to put on Santa’s disguise and entertain all of you on 8.12. with the best venue and artists. The ticket sale starts on the 17th of November at 12pm. You definitely don’t want to miss this party!

IV Of Interest


The Museum of Finnish Architecture’s main exhibition this autumn and winter, Hope from Wood, looks at wooden architecture from the perspective of the hope it inspires. The multi-voiced and multi-faceted exhibition covers a time span extending from the early achievements of wood construction to the architecture of the future produced by artificial intelligence. It brings together an interesting group of contributors addressing the exhibition theme in the form of, for instance, love letters, videos and music.

In the era of climate crisis, much is expected from wood. One building material hardly solves all the challenges of building construction, but it is the spark that hopefully ignites a debate about major change. The exhibition highlights how architects, as well as the entire construction industry, can have a say in what kind of future we are heading for.
