Finnish Architecture Navigator is a curated database of Finnish architecture administered by Archinfo Finland.
The database is constantly updated with new architects and projects, with the aim that the service will include all key works and architects of Finnish architecture, throughout the times up until today. The curated themes will present different perspectives to the social, typological or other topical aspects of Finnish architecture.
The service was first launched in 2016 in collaboration with the Museum of Finnish Architecture MFA, Alvar Aalto Foundation, Finnish Association of Architects SAFA, Association of Finnish Architects’ Offices ATL and the Finnish Architectural Review Arkkitehti. The creation of the service was financially supported by the Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and the development project in 2019–2020 was carried out with the support of The Finnish Cultural Foundation.

Accessibility means that as many different people as possible can use online services as smoothly as possible. Accessibility is the consideration of the diversity and diversity of people in the design and implementation of online services. Accessibility is essential for some people and beneficial for all of us. Consideration of accessibility is usually also good planning.
