The HEL/LO – Let's Talk series landed in Helsinki for its penultimate event 12 September 2012 and invited the public to a discussion on doing things one's own way and daring to think one step ahead in design and architecture.

The speakers for HEL/LO – Let's Talk About Alternatives included London guests Sean Griffiths from architecture studio FAT and architect and urbanist Alex Warnock-Smith from Urban Projects Bureau along with the Helsinki guests curator, columnist and researcher Annamari Vänskä and designer-researcher Krista Kosonen of IMU Design. The talk was chaired by Beatrice Galilee, the chief curator for the 2013 Lisbon Architecture Triennale.

Comprising four events in total, the HEL/LO – Let’s Talk series brings together architecture and design professionals from London and Helsinki for a lively discussion and exchange of ideas throughout 2012. The HEL/LO series is one of the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 international satellite events.
