On Thursday 23 August, Laituri and COBE open the doors to the exhibition and book launch of ‘Our Urban Living Room’ during Night of the Arts in Helsinki.

 

‘Our Urban Living Room’ invites visitors and readers to experience the city from a new perspective – as an extended living room - in which the boundaries between the private and public space are erased. At Laituri you can experience a comparison between ‘Our Urban Living Room’ with projects by COBE in Copenhagen and architectural and urban planning projects in Helsinki. The exhibition is open from 23 August-30 November 2018.


The exhibition is developed by COBE in collaboration with Laituri and supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, Knud Højgaards Fond, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Danish Ministry of Culture and the Culture Fund for Denmark and Finland. In connection with the exhibition opening, COBE is launching the 2nd edition of the ‘Our Urban Living Room' book, published by Arvinius+Orfeus.

 

Debate, exhibition opening and book launch: 23 August 2018, 4-9 pm.

Where: Laituri, Narinkka 2, 00100 Helsinki, PL 10231, 00099 Helsingin kaupunki

A second and updated edition of Our Urban Living Room will be released in late August 2018 by Arvinius + Orfeus Publishing. The book is about COBE's projects in Copenhagen - but also about what Copenhagen has taught us as architects and as human beings. It is a book celebrating a new kind of city, where public and private spaces are intertwined in exciting new ways. Our metaphor for this invigorating city is "our urban living room". 

 

Our Urban Living Room will be available at major bookstores worldwide as well as the online bookshop of Arvinius + Orfeus where you can pre-order the book from today.
