Marco Casagrande, (born May 7, 1971), is a Finnish architect, environmental artist, architectural theorist, writer and professor of architecture. He graduated from Helsinki University of Technology department of architecture (2001).
Casagrande’s cross-over art/architectural work encompasses the realms of architecture, urban and environmental planning, environmental art, circuses and other artistic disciplines.

In search for subconscious architecture, real reality and connection between the modern man and nature. He believes that one shall not be blindfolded by stress, the surroundings of economics, the online access to entertainment or information. What is real is valuable.

His theory of the Third Generation City views the post industrial urban condition as a machine ruined by human nature and architects as design shamans merely interpreting what the bigger nature of the shared mind is transmitting. The theory is developed in the independent multidisciplinary research centre Ruin Academy (2010-).

Casagrande's works have been selected three times to the Venice Architecture Biennale; years 2000, 2004 and 2006.
About my artwork
Something in-between architecture and other disciplines of art, science and local knowledge. Sometimes houses, sometimes not.
