Puistokatu 4, located in the Kaivopuisto district in Helsinki, Finland, is an event space for people in Helsinki and a safe space for research, work and discourse on the current ecological crisis.
The house will be opened gradually during the summer and autumn 2022. First to open is the ground floor (Floor 1) of the house, intended as an extended living-room for everyone in Helsinki. It houses a library and Restaurant Elm, scheduled to open in July 2022.
Floor 2 will house the new offices of the Tiina and Antti Herlin Foundation, the Maj and Tor Nessling Foundation and the Forum for Environmental Information. The Puistokatu 4 team will also work on this floor.
In autumn 2022, a science attic will be opened on Floor 3 of the house to provide a co-working space, base and meeting place for researchers of the ecological crisis from various fields of science. The open call for research post applications is now open!
In addition, a varying group of Puistokatu 4 members, called Agents, will be based in the house. Their work is linked to our mission in one way or another: building an ecologically sustainable future at the personal level, following the principles of a safer space and constructive discourse.
The premises of Puistokatu 4 have been renovated to make them accessible for all visitors.
