Spirit of Paimio Conference 2024

On October 9-10, the second annual Spirit of Paimio Conference will gather speakers and guests in Paimio, Finland, for two days filled with inspiring keynotes, talks and round-table discussions on the future of architecture, cities, societies and wellbeing.

This year’s Spirit of Paimio conference will be all about the power of people and togetherness. Under the theme Reimagining Community, the conference brings together leading minds from different creative fields to discuss how Alvar and Aino Aalto’s ideas behind the landmark Paimio Sanatorium – infusing architecture with empathy, community and scientific inquiry – can inform and enhance our present day societies.

Spirit of Paimio is thrilled to welcome Beatriz Colomina, Bjarke Ingels, Carlo Ratti, Ersilia Vaudo, Octave Perrault, Spencer Bailey and Studio Swine, and more as keynote speakers.


More than just a building, Paimio Sanatorium has become seen as a world-renowned masterpiece of modern architecture. Subscribe our Newsletter and be first to learn more about Paimio Sanatorium’s events and exhibitions.
