The Finnish pavilion highlights the architects' ability to envision solutions to global problems
Archinfo is in charge of Finland's exhibition at the International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. In 2023, the Finnish Pavilion introduces The Dry Collective's exhibition Huussi – Imagining the future history of sanitation, which questions the sanitary solution we take for granted, the flushing toilet. The Dry Collective includes curator Arja Renell, architects Emmi Keskisarja, Barbara Motta, Eero Renell and Janne Teräsvirta and graphic designer Antero Jokinen.
Huussi critically reassesses our sanitation system at a time when the sufficiency of drinking water and food production is a global problem. The exhibition invites the global architectural community and experts to develop new urban-scale solutions that saves water and recycles nutrients.
The 18th Venice Architecture Biennale is open to the public from 20 May to 26 November 2023. Welcome to Huussi!
Finnish Architecture Navigator draws you a map of the best of Finnish architecture

Archinfo is the New European Bauhaus contact point in Finland
The New European Bauhaus initiative connects the European Green Deal to our daily lives and living spaces. It calls on all Europeans to imagine and build together a sustainable and inclusive future that is beautiful for our eyes, minds, and souls.
As Finland's national contact point for the New European Bauhaus initiative, Archinfo participates in an informal EU-wide network coordinated by the European Commission for exchange of experience. The most important mission for the contact point is to spread information nationally about e.g. funding possibilities and New European Bauhaus Festival and Prizes. The Ministry of the Environment, the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment take part in coordinating the initiative.
Our values are to act openly, independently, and sustainably.Get to know our strategy

We are Archinfo!
We are specialists in the field of architecture. Our team’s expertise covers architecture, architectural communication, and event production, as well as architectural, art, and cultural policy. We hope to hear from you!
At Archinfo, we focus on three key objectives: to increase general appreciation for architecture in Finland, raise the profile of Finnish architecture internationally, and reinforce the societal importance of architecture.
Our sphere of operations
Increasing general appreciation for architecture in Finland
We increase appreciation of architecture and cultural heritage in Finland. We produce content and events that underpin discussions about the built environment for citizens who are interested in their local environment and a sustainable future. We communicate topical, reliable, and broadly accessible information; we make Finnish architecture more approachable. A key method for the above is the Finnish Architecture Navigator online service. We offer expert communication services for our partners and prepared topics for the media. We participate in architecture and design education networks and project partnerships.Read more
Raising the profile of Finnish architecture internationally
We promote the global recognition and visibility of Finnish architecture. We increase the presence of Finnish architecture and architectural operators in international projects and events, other industry forums, and the media. One key tool for the above is the International Architecture Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia. We organise high-profile projects, network actively, and act as a permanent cooperation body for international relations. We wish to reach foreign architecture professionals, key stakeholders and mainstream media, and select specialist and trade media.Read more
In social advocacy
Reinforcing the societal importance of architecture
We reinforce the status and importance of architecture in society. We actively take the initiative and start discussions to expand the understanding of culturally, politically, and economically influential people about the cultural and social importance of architecture. We participate in the execution and monitoring of Finland’s architectural policy programme and engage in lobbying. We offer a platform for municipal representatives working on architectural policy programmes to exchange information and network, and we communicate information about these programmes. We also actively participate in international programmes, projects, and networks aimed at promoting the social importance of architecture.Read more
