This summer, the Embassy of Finland chose to make the U.S. premier of Helsinki: New Horizons, a traveling exhibition created by the City Planning Department of Helsinki, at the Center of the Built Environment and Infrastructure Studies (CBEIS) on Morgan State University’s campus from June 2 – 30.
The exhibit focuses on the sustainable development of the City of Helsinki in preparation for population growth over the next 40 years. According to the exhibit overview, “Helsinki will be an urban, rapidly growing rail transport network city with expanding central areas coupled with other developing centres in the region”.
For insight of the plan, at the exhibition opening on June 2nd, the School of Architecture & Planning hosted a lecture by Mr. Olavi Veltheim, Town Planning Division Director of the City of Helsinki, where he discussed the vision and implementation process for the City of Helsinki.
The exhibition will be available Monday – Friday, 8 am – 6 pm at CBEIS until June 30th. It is free and open to the public.
A smaller satellite exhibition will be on view in downtown Baltimore at the headquarters of the Baltimore Chapter of The American Institute of Architects from June 9th – August 29th.
