Mobile Home London

Mobile Home 2017 is a joint venture of four Finnish cultural institutes in Paris, Berlin, the Benelux and London. The project explores and interprets different meanings of home through experiences, architecture, art, science and sociology during the year of 2017, when independent Finland is celebrating its centenary.

Mobile Home London is produced in collaboration with architecture professionals and students, and it will be an integral part of the architecture studies of the University of Westminster. Architect Sami Rintala and Professor Harry Charrington, Architect and Head of the Department of Architecture at the University of Westminster, are the forces behind the project in collaboration with Harry Paticas and Tom Raymont of Arboreal Architecture
Under their guidance the students research and develop environmentally friendly building materials and models with low emission. The end result will be a wooden shelter for a wilderness trail at Lusto Finnish Forest Museum in Punkaharju, Finland.
The process and end results of the project will be shown at the University of Westminster in London in June 2017 and at the Habitare Showroom in Helsinki in September 2017.
