Helsinki City Installation
The on-site installation in Beijing came to consist of seven cubic spaces which visitors are allowed to walk in or alternatively, peek into. The spaces are divided, and named, with regard to the elements that make living happy, namely: Forest, Knowledge, Work, Sauna, Food, Rest and Play.
The installation’s main materials are a beautiful combination of printed textiles by Marimekko and Finnish timber panels by Wood from Finland. In the middle of it all, stands the communal meeting place, the Square, where workshops and events take place during the festival.
