Description On 7 – 9 August 2009, the 11th edition of this annual event dedicated to architectural culture and research, that bears the name of Alvar Aalto, will take place in the university city of Jyväskylä, Finland, where several of his major works and the museum dedicated to him are located. Around the theme EDGE: Paracentric Architecture, architects from Africa, Asia, Finland, and Latin America will present their research, which, though carried out independently in different parts of the world, pursues the same ecological, communitarian, social and cultural objectives that defy market dictates. A discussion forum on architects' responsibilities in the evolution of nature and society will also be held. Louise Cox will represent the UIA at this seminar.
