New lease on life for VR Group’s old engineering works
In order to come true, the Turku 2011 programme required new, adaptable premises. Some performances and exhibitions required a large industrial hall or a similar space. Logomo was created to meet these needs.
After Turku’s year as the Capital of Culture, Logomo has continued its operations and has grown into a diverse event centre for creative industries. The modern premises, built with skill within the old building, have been praised for their state-of-the-art technology, for example.
In 2011, there was something going on in Turku every day. The thousands of programme workers had prepared for the year for a long time, and now the citizens had a whole year to enjoy.
Turku 2011 magazine provided information on the Capital of Culture programme, the people behind the programme and Turku in general.
There were five issues of Turku 2011 of which three in English (issues 1, 2 and 4).
