What is this all about?
Children’s Design Week’s main event will focus on the design of the future city, giving a voice to kids and youth about what kind of a city centre would be genuinely open to them.
The window installation series started in 2021 continues by giving the ground floor windows in the corner of Aleksanterinkatu and Mikonkatu for kids to take over.
What does the city of your dreams look like? What is a genuinely open city of the future like? Come tell us your opinion and leave your imprint in the middle of the city! There will be two workshops in a window installation.
Welcome, all designers great and small! The installation will be on display throughout HDW for the Young until 11 September.
In cooperation with: Culture and Leisure Department of the City of Helsinki, Urban Tech Helsinki and the Design Academy of the Design Museum and Ornamo.
