Architectural Guide

Buildings and projects from 1917 to the present day

Ulf Meyer
With further contributions by Cornelia Dörries, Douglas Gordon, Laura Kolbe und Heikki Mäntymäki

Creativity is a pervasive feature of this northern pilgrimage site for devotees of well-designed buildings, such that Finnish architecture has continued to cement its international acclaim in recent years. Furthermore, award-winning Finnish designs have contributed towards the reputation of Helsinki as a world capital of commendable compositions. This architectural guide introduces buildings and projects in Helsinki and Espoo from 1917 to the present day. A group of authors led by Ulf Meyer deliver many knowledgeable insights into modern architecture and illustrate that there is far more to Finnish architecture beyond the works of those well-known masters such as Eliel Saarinen, Alvar Aalto, Viljo Revell as well as Kaija and Heikki Siren. Content has been enlarged and considerably enhanced for this second edition.
