They spent the semester contemplating the future role of a town hall that had lost its original programmatic and symbolic functions due to the redistricting of regional townships.

In these talks professor Toshiko Mori discussed the working process and key findings of the architecture studio. Florence Lam and Benjamin Hayes, Master’s Students in Architecture, presented their fresh views on the future of the Säynätsalo Town Hall.

The Rethinking Säynätsalo Town Hall talks included a poster exhibition at the Säynätsalo Town Hall.
