Architects of Air: Arboria

During the Night of the Arts on 15 August, Kansalaistori square will sprout Arboria, a space full of light and joy. The massive temporary structures by the English Architects of Air collective have dazzled millions of visitors all over the globe.

The labyrinthine Arboria seeks inspiration from the shapes of the forest and trees: light-filled hallways crisscross like branches and, going ever deeper, the visitor will find new nooks and impressive squares. Sunlight gleams through the colourful structures, creating a space that is alive and constantly changing. Arboria is a place for relaxation, adventure and inspiration.

Please notice when visiting Arboria:

– No entrance inside after final admission.
– Duration of experience approximately 20 mins
– Capacity of 80 persons inside
– Max. 6 child guarded by one adult
