Congratulations to Ola Kolehmainen for having been awarded the 2015 RIBA Honorary Fellowships. The Fellowships are aimed to those who have made a particular contribution to architecture in its broadest sense, including promotion, administration and outreach within the fields of engineering, media, education and the arts.
Working in Berlin, Kolehmainen is one of the top names of the internationally acclaimed Helsinki School. In his upcoming exhibition at Galerie Forsblom Kolehmainen has for the first time used historical architecture as his works’ starting point, photographing Istanbul’s Byzantine and Medieval Ottoman religious structures of 500-600 A.D..
The exhibition is on view from April 10–May 3, 2015.
