In the small scene of Finnish architecture circles, architecture criticism is cursory. In Finland, the profession lacks an active culture of discussion. Even if the importance of criticism is acknowledged, architects and other stakeholders in the field are not accustomed to engaging in discussion outside of professional publications. In an active culture of criticism, the role of architecture in society at large should be at stake, as well as its responsibilities on the level of sustainability. If there is to be a future for architecture criticism in Finland, not only on the international and local, but also on the national level, a change has to occur in the themes and topics; the criteria applied to evaluating buildings should be extended to include not only aesthetical, but also – increasingly – ethical objectives and environmental considerations. Further, the author holds a plea of the training of architecture critics.
