scs: ‘so nordic’ gallery, helsinki
The project So Nordic (SNO) is a pop-up gallery, located in Helsinki city center, that aims to establish an arena
where nordic artists, architects and designers can exhibit and exchange ideas, ambitions and works. The gallery
will be a mobile structure and exhibition space that constitutes a flexible set-up for art exhibitions and social
events. The project is an extension of the Black Box - Helsinki Mobile Museum of Modern Art project
(www.theblackbox.fi), a street gallery that has established itself as an important addition to Helsinki's cultural
scene. The purpose of SNO is to stimulate new collaborations across nordic traditions and cultures.
The objective of the project is to create a platform for debate amongst young nordic architects about what
architecture can be and to contribute to a more inquisitive and foreward-thinking architectural scene in the Nordic
countries, as well as to generate public interest in the subject.
