Piece of Heaven

The Piece of Heaven art house project in 2012 brought ten small art houses to liven up Tampere. This urban art project sought new ways of combining arts and architecture, educational institutions and commercial enterprises. Led by Tampere Art Museum, the project involved 21 artists and students from Tampere University of Technology School of Architecture and Tampere Vocational College in Lempäälä, and was supported by several businesses and associations. Eight of the art houses were shown in the centre of Tampere, and two in the Vuores Housing Fair.

The project was based on the initiative of the visual artist Tuomo Rosenlund. Frei Zimmer was responsible for the production of the project. The producer acquired funding, managed communications and took care of the practical arrangements.
