In 2017 and 2019 the School of Architecture + Cities built two pavilions in Finland in collaboration with the Finnish Institute, the architect Sami Rintala.
This year, our students are building a pavilion here in London: a working Finnish sauna in Victoria Embankment Gardens – just next to Embankment tube station. Student helpers from the Fabrication Laboratory, are currently prefabricating the sauna in the Fabrication Lab, and from 24–30 June, as part of the London Festival Architecture, you are all welcome to watch the students construct it on site.
It is bookable to be used until 8 July.

Later in the summer the sauna will move to Lake Windermere.
