Mission Neighbourhood Book Launch & Talk
with Christian Pagh, Hanna Harris & Päivi Raivio

Thursday 16th of May

Parkly & RaivioBumann studio, Mechelininkatu 23, Helsinki

Welcome to the Mission Neighbourhood book launch and talk!

This event marks the official launch of the Mission Neighbourhood book in Finland. During the event, Christian Pagh, Director and Chief Curator of the Oslo Architecture Triennale and co-editor of the book, will introduce the book’s background, concept and key insights. Additionally, we will hear commentary from Hanna Harris, Chief Design Officer of the City of Helsinki, who has contributed to the book. A brief introduction will also be given by Päivi Raivio, designer and co-founder of Parkly, which is one of the tools selected in the Neighbourhood Index by the Oslo Architecture Triennale.

About the book:
The Mission Neighbourhood book explores the urgent, urban issues of our time – from social infrastructure, nature and biodiversity, to mobility and urban governance – in a neighbourhood perspective. Intent on inspiring action, the book offers a rich variety of best practice projects, perspectives and hands-on advice. With 35 contributions from acclaimed architects, academics, civil servants and developers from the Nordics and beyond, ‘Mission Neighbourhood – (Re)forming Communities’ offers new insight into how to form more sustainable, diverse and meaningful neighbourhoods.

Contributors include Jos Boys, Cobe, Camilla van Deurs, EFFEKT, Jan Gehl, Dan Hill, Indy Johar, Carlos Moreno, Juhani Pallasmaa, Kate Raworth, Martha Thorne, Finn Williams, and many more.
