Landscape Research Project
The process of Teija's research started from an exhibition Shifting Contours 2009 at Alvar Aalto Museum. The topics of the research are: to combine Aalto in a context of architectural landscape and it's cultural origin, to understand how experiencing landscape fits to his urban planning, to point out how his latest projects are underlining the connection from his thought of landscape and art of architecture.

After several rented studios in Helsinki, Jyväskylä and Fiskars we decided to build our own atelier house near by Lake Päijänne in Middle Finland. The house is mainly a storage with the facilities of living but mainly designed for working purposes.
