I am an architect, designer and urbanist. Originally from Helsinki, I studied architecture at the Aalto University and have practiced in the fields of urban design and architecture, as well as more cross-disciplinary forms of design. I write about architecture, cities and various observations around them.
Here on Tumblr, I post more or less daily notes about my thinkings and doings, about architecture, cities, the places I go to, as well as snippets of both the quirky and the heroic visual histories of modernism(s).
Currently, I’m based mostly in Hong Kong. My PhD research at the School of Architecture CUHK deals with architectural curatorial practice and the contemporary Chinese urbanism. I’m also involved with the M.Sc. in Urban Design program, its teaching, publications and events.
