Helsinki Design Week is coming soon, Sept. 3-13

The 11th Helsinki Design Week gets underway September 3-13, under the theme of “Time Machine.” More than 200 events will take place, many around the main venue of the L3 Design Dock in Helsinki’s Jätkäsaari.

With a focus on the future of cities, the role of design will be explored to help envision what cities in another 30 to 40 years will look like. Helsinki has very actively integrated design into it urban planning through the work of Design Driven City, created by and resulting from the World Design Capital Helsinki year in 2012.

In the beginning of 2015, Helsinki was named one of the 16 Cities of Design in the World as part of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.
