The competition of Le Maillon was won in April by LAN (Local Architecture Network) with a proposal based on the idea of theatre as a process, rather than a fixed structure (as they quote in their own statement “the foyer-room-logistic” triade). Their design would smoehow work as a city; it could evolve, change, and transform itself as time goes by and at the user’s will. LAN Architecture is the winner of the French National phase of the Big Mat International Architectural Award.
Tomorrow, the Museum of Finnish Architecture will host Czech architect Martin Rajnis to give a talk on experimental wooden constructions on the occasion of the latest exhibition “Annual rings 1994–2014.

The conference will take place at 6pm, in the lecture hall of the Finlands Arkitekturmuseum in Helsinki.
