One hundred and twenty thousand visitors are expected to arrive in the Finnish capital, attending more than 200 events held across the city covering a variety of topics. Design Diplomacy will be holding a series of meetings and discussions about international cooperation in participating embassies. Open Studios offers attendees the chance to learn about Helsinki’s world-class architecture and design studios, while HDW Children’s Weekend provides workshops for tomorrow’s artists and engineers.



Even if you don’t know anything about the technical aspect, visitors in the city can appreciate HDW HOP’s various art installations constructed around the city, like Berlin’s Plastique Fantastique, a giant soap bubble engulfing Helsinki’s Three Smith’s statue.
