• Friends of the Bryggman Institute founded
  • In April, after the first Bryggman Institute seminar, the association Friends of the Bryggman Institute (BIY-BIV, after the abbreviations in Finnish and Swedish) was founded. The association intends to support the educational and research activities of the Institute, and to call forth interest and enthusiasm in the built environment.

    More than sixty friends of the built environment have already joined the BIY-BIV. Bryggman promenades in the autumn of 2010 were so popular that they will be repeated in the spring. The association will also arrange excursions for members only.

    The BIY-BIV chair is Caterina Casagrande-Mäkelä, architect.
