Arja Lehtimäki works internationally as an urban designer, architect and an artist. Her work has been awarded both in Finland and in the UK. Art, architecture and urban design form a large interconnected field which forms the base for my work. The built environment with its various physical and social networks form inspiring and ever changing starting points for projects. Using space as a medium requires understanding of the multilayered nature of places and sensitivity to different cultural contexts. Aspiration for sustainability, ecological balance and to create work which is place specificic is inherent in all my work.
