LIFE-CYCLE AS THE THEME OF THE
ECODESIGN SPECIAL EXHIBITION 2014

This year the most important criteria for the works on display was the life-cycle, hence the design itself played a major role. Approximately 65 interesting and innovative works were showcased.

The curator of the exhibition was Finnish Architect Marco Casagrande, born 1971 in Turku, Finland. He graduated from the Helsinki University of Technology Department of Architecture in 2001. From the early stages of his career Casagrande started to mix architecture with other disciplines of art and science landing with a series of ecologically conscious architectural installations around the world.

Casagrande’s works and teaching are moving freely in-between architecture, landscape architecture, urban and environmental design and science, environmental art and circus adding up into cross-over architectural thinking of ”commedia

dell’architettura”, a broad vision of built human environment tied into social drama and environmental awareness.

”There is no other reality than nature”. He views architects as design shamans merely interpreting what the bigger nature of the shared mind is transmitting. Marco Casagrande is the Principal of the Casagrande Laboratory (2003), a Finland based internationally operating cross-over architectural/ artistic studio and a former co-owner of the Architect Office Casagrande & Rintala (1999-2003). Casagrande is WEAK! together with Hsieh Ying-Chun and Roan Ching-Yueh.

EcoDesign Exhibition arranged in conjunction with the Habitare Fair, 10 – 14 September 2014 at the Messukeskus, Expo and Convention centre Helsinki. Images of the exhibition are available here.
