Location: FInlandia Hall, park by the Töölönlahti bay
Time: 5–9 January 2019 5pm–10 pm
This year’s Lux Architecture series illuminates Finlandia Hall, designed by legendary Finnish architect Alvar Aalto. The rear façade of the building facing the Töölönlahti bay is transformed into flowing water by an impressive light and sound installation. The art highlights the fact that water is an exhaustible natural resource and that clean water should not be taken for granted. The installation has been created by Ramboll Valostudio.
“The visual material for the installation is provided by the associations and movement of water. The sound art supports the theme and creates a rhythm for the light by describing the state of the water. Entitled H2.O, the installation transforms the glowingly white façade of Finlandia Hall into a flowing entity,” describes Reija Pasanen, artistic director of the installation.
The Lux Architecture series highlights Helsinki’s architectural gems by illuminating them with exceptional brilliance. Finlandia Hall continues the Lux Architecture series, which previously highlighted the Ateneum Art Museum (2016), the façades along the Market Square (2017) and the Erottaja Fire Station (2018).
This installation is sponsored by Sun Effects.
