ARCHITECTURE CLASS GET-TOGETHER

For anyone who doesn't know it already let me tell you: the A-85 class of the Helsinki University of Technology is the best. We had a little get-together in Helsinki and generally expecting a turn out of any decent size is close to hopeless after Midsummer, but my colleagues showed once again what our crowd is made of: sixteen people attended!

L to R: Arja, Ilkka, Pirjo, Anu, Minerva, Kimmo, Ifa, Laura, Severi, Minna, Jari, Anne and Tero.  Jussi, Mikko and Anna were still to come.

We went for dinner. I think the iPad was lighting this photo through a been lens even through people were actually drinking wine. Severi, Kimmo and me.
