The three skateboarding exhibitions in The Pool are united by the design of Alvar Aalto’s Villa Mairea swimming pool and its influence on international skateboarding culture. Through many twists and turns and after decades, the kidney-shaped form of the pool has become a symbol of pool skateboarding.


"Skateboarding is so much about personal expression. It allows you to be a part of a community while continuing to be yourself through the style and tricks you choose."

”The photographs in the exhibition at Aalto2 Museum Centre represent my small personal glimpse into a subculture called skateboarding – a subculture that has evolved from backyard pools and city wastelands into an Olympic sport.”
