St Petersburg | 27.06.2012
On June 27th Project Baltia and the State Museum of the History of St Petersburg opened the ‘Nordic ID’ exhibition at the Ioannovsky Bastion of the Peter and Paul Fortress. The exhibition had previously been shown at the 3rd Moscow Biennale of Architecture. The St Petersburg opening, which marked the fifth anniversary of our magazine, followed a discussion on the Nordic identity in architecture.
Opening Week of the 5th Architecture Biennale will take place from September 11th – 15th, 2019 in multiple venues in the heart of Tallinn. Dedicated to the theme “Beauty Matters: The Resurgence of Beauty”, the international architecture festival, organised by the Estonian Centre for Architecture and curated by Dr. Yael Reisner, celebrates the aesthetic experience in architecture, after almost 80 years of cultural bias.
The only foreigner to take part in the series of architecture talks entitled ‘Genius loci’ (organized by Project Baltia and the ‘Novaya Gollandiya: cultural urbanization’ project) was the Finnish theoretician Juhani Pallasmaa. Russian readers know Pallasmaa from his book ‘The thinking hand. Existential and embodied wisdom in architecture’, which is now a bibliographical rarity. Here Marina Nikiforova talks to Finland’s principal architect-thinker.
