Forest Camp

Art competition for Kilpijärvi school in City of Iisalmi

Artwork proposition: “Forest Camp”
Address: Kilpivirrantie 33, Iisalmi
Customer: City of Iisalmi
Artists: Jaana Partanen and Heikki Lamusuo
Pa-La team: Iiro Heikkilä


City of Iisalmi was looking for percent-for-art for the new Kilpijärvi school in the fall of 2019. Partanen & Lamusuo Ltd participated in the sketch contest with the proposal Forest Camp. The artwork placed in the windows of the building brings the forest inside the school. Illuminated from the inside in the darkness of autumn and winter, the artwork makes the school look warm and inviting. When viewed from inside, the whole opens up to each space as a unique work of art. At the edge of the forest, students can find peeking animal figures.

Forest Camp was to be executed using digiprint technique on glass or window taping on the inside of the exterior glazing. Rasterization allows one to see through the image.

Forest Camp was not implemented this time, as the honor of winning the competition went to another artist.

We think that adaptability is more important than flexibility when it comes to creative collaboration.
The ability to tell the same story, even if the amount of pages in the book would change. With the experience of hundreds of both small and large projects, we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished, the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view, that we can succeed only because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work in, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are a creative design and architecture office, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
