This year, the annual lecture series by Aalto University and the Museum of Finnish Architecture focuses on the architect's role in society. The season's first lecture will be given by Rozana Montiel.

Rozana Montiel is an award-winning Mexican architect whose work has been displayed at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2016 and 2018, among others. She has worked as an invited professor at renowned universities, including the University of Colombia in 2023. The office named after Montiel specialises in architectural design, artistic re-conceptualisation of space, and the public domain. The studio works on various scales, from public space design to art installations.

”She (Rozana Montiel) has a playful, material-sensitive, and relaxed approach to art. In her career, Rozana Montiel has inspiringly managed to combine teaching and design work”, describes Jenni Reuter, curator of the Architecture Speaks! lecture series.

The Architecture Speaks! lecture series, a collaboration between Aalto University and the Museum of Finnish Architecture, has presented current architectural phenomena for nine years. The 9th season of the lecture series will feature lectures by six architects or groups of architects.

The lecture is on Zoom, and pre-registration is required. Read more through this link.
