Anne Stenros, Architect and Chief Design Officer of the City of Helsinki, will visit IE School of Architecture and Design to talk about The Power of Design: Towards People-Centered Urbanism, a presentation based on her favorite quote by architect Louis Kahn: “A city is a place where a small boy, as he walks through it, may see something that will tell him what he wants to do his whole life.”
In her talk, Anne Stenros will share her idea of being inspired by the urban environment for the whole life as the citizen experiences it at its best. The city could and should be an abundance of ideas, inspiration, and creativity for all kinds of people.
