Around Kiasma

Around Kiasma video tells about the history of the Kiasma site. The Parliament House and the Lasipalatsi and Postitalo buildings are all landmarks that were built in the 1930s. In 1960, thousands of spectators attended the unveiling of the equestrian statue of Marshal Mannerheim. The construction of the Museum of Contemporary Art next to the statue was hotly debated in the mid-1990s. Today the surroundings of Kiasma and the Helsinki Music Centre are an urban meeting point known for skateboarders, cyclists, demonstrations and cultural events.
