Discussion with Peggy and others about their project submission to The Next Helsinki

December 17 2016

The transcript of a moderated conversation between Peggy Levitt, Joanna Warsza, and Hanna Snellman is now available.

The Next Helsinki is an international competition seeking for innovative ideas to the improvement of the cultural and public space of Helsinki. Launched as an alternative to the controversial Guggenheim Helsinki project, the Next Helsinki has called upon architects, urbanists, artists, and environmentalists to imagine how Helsinki and the South Harbor site allotted to the proposed museum can be transformed for the maximum benefit of the city’s residents and visitors.
