The Europan competition for young architects has come of age in Finland. With 20 yeas of competition activity and 10 competitions under the belt we celebrated this milestone by publishing the EUROPAN FINLAND 20 YEARS book.

What kind of footprint has Europan left on the evolution of Finnish cities? This is discussed in the book in a series of articles by different operators in the Europan process. The book also offers an overview of the previous competition sessions, their results and the implemented projects.

”We often perceive our immediate surroundings as the most banal possible environment. However, someone from another culture may discover values in it, to which we ourselves have been oblivious.”

Sami Vikström, architect SAFA
Winner of Europan 11 in Turku
Jury member of Europan 13
