SITE | UNIQUE POST-RENAISSANCE FORTRESS TOWN

The town of Hamina (Fredrikshamn) is located in the South-Eastern Finland, close to Russian border. Built in early 18th century, its ideal circular plan and star-like fortress system echoes Renaissance urban ideals, equal only in two other places in the world. The summer school will focus on the underground spaces of the historic fortress and the Hamina Bastioni, and selected cellars of the historical houses.

The students will be immersed into a unique community with a great sensitivity in the protection of their Heritage. This interaction won’t be solely through the accommodation, but with the day-by-day contact and a final event that will gather multiple local agents.
