by Alvar Aalto Foundation

icam was founded in response to the emergence of architectural museums as distinctive institutions. The founding members established the organization in August 1979. Thirty six participants, representing twenty five different institutions, finally attended the meeting that took place in the fortified island of Suomenlinna, off the South harbor of the city, on 20-25 August, 1979.
Thirty years later it’s time to celebrate!
