Speaking 10 September at Laituri, Helsinki, about the urban waterfront as a landscape of endless possibilities – a liminal space in which past and future, known and unknown, city and nature, death and new beginnings combine.
My talk is part of my research project of Helsinki’s waterfront, its cultural identity in literature, and the narratives of the waterfront in urban planning.
My talk is part of a one-day seminar on “more life on the waterfront”, bringing a variety of approaches to the urban waterfront, linked to the exhibition Veteen piiretty viiva / Waterline.
The seminar’s program can be found here: seminar program.
Laituri is the Helsinki City Planning Department’s information and exhibition space on Narinkka Square, Helsinki.
