Repost @mfa_archstories - The Museum of Finnish Architecture is part of the Modern Life! exhibition at HAM. The exhibition is a unique collaboration of five museums: MFA, @alvaraaltofoundation, @hamhelsinki, @designmuseo_fi and @thefinnishmuseumofphotography. In this series, we give the voice to the directors of the museums. Director of MFA Juulia Kauste shares her thoughts on the museum of the future. #arcshtories - - - "Architecture is out there – and so are we. Arkkitehtuurimuseo on läsnä siellä, missä arkkitehtuuri näkyy ihmisten arjessa. Tulevaisuuden Arkkitehtuurimuseo on arkkitehtuurin näyteikkuna, jossa museon kokoelmien aarteet kertovat tarinaa arkkitehtuurin roolista suomalaisen yhteiskunnan rakentamisessa. Se on myös kaupunkikulttuurin avoin ja ajankohtainen keskustelufoorumi: kansainvälisesti aktiivinen toimija ja jalkautuva museo, joka on läsnä kaupungeissa ja kulttuuriympäristöissä eri puolilla maata. Museo on aktiivinen arkkitehtuurikasvattaja, joka tarjoaa uusia näkökulmia rakennettuun ympäristöön ja kaupunkien kehitykseen niin lapsille kuin aikuisillekin. Museo tarjoaa asiantuntijapalveluita, joiden avulla niin asukkaat, yritykset kuin päättäjätkin voivat oivaltaa arkkitehtuuriin ja kaupunkien muutokseen liittyviä kysymyksiä. Tulevaisuuden museo on moniääninen, reflektoiva, kantaaottava ja osallistava." - - - #arkkitehtuurimuseo #mfa #arkkitehtuuri #architecture #modernismi #modernism #moderniaelamaa #modernlife #tulevaisuudenmuseo #museo #museum #tulevaisuus #future
