New School Helsinki

New School Helsinki, a concept presenting Finnish schools and the way Helsinki engages the public in developing the city.

The exhibition is an interactive space which symbolizes the school yard and the city. Just as the inhabitants of Helsinki are engaged in building the city, the visitors of the exhibition are invited to participate in building the space. As the exhibition goes on, the simple steel frame constructions symbolizing the city are gradually woven with colorful textile strands turning it into a warm and inviting environment.

The exhibition was part of the International Design House exhibition at Taipei WDC 2016.

The concept was created for the City of Helsinki in co-operation with Visit Helsinki and Werklig.
