Finnish Arkki School of Architecture for Children and Youth has expanded to Thailand, where it on 27 July 2019 celebrated the grand opening of Arkki Thailand in the centre of Bangkok.
The ceremony was opened by Finnish ambassador Satu Suikkari-Kleven, and followed by panel discussions on Finnish education and the importance of creative education. Arkki courses were also showcased, including an architecture workshop and fashion design course.
