Photos from Pat Rand in Helsinki

Pat Rand Fulbright Chair Award
Distinguished Professor of Architecture Patrick Rand, FAIA, DPACSA, is currently teaching and conducting research in Aalto University in Helsinki, Finland as part of his Fulbright Distinguished Chair Award.
Rand has shared some photos of his time and Finland during a Fulbright Forum:
These photos are taken during the Fulbright Forum, a 2-day event on 11 and 12 of March. More than 50 Fulbright scholars, teachers, and students gathered for the Forum, and the public was invited to participate.

Above: Day 2 of the Fulbright Forum at Aalto University in Otaniemi. Rand was the lead-off speaker and delivered a brief presentation summarizing the teaching and research he has been working on during his time in Finland.
Rand will be returning to Raleigh in May and we look forward to learning more about his experiences.
