Throughout the 20th century there has been a wide international interest in Finnish architecture. Special highlights have been the turn of the century, when architecture together with the other fields of culture supported the efforts aiming at national independence; the 1930s, when the independent nation shaped its profile through modern, functionalist architecture; and the postwar reconstruction period in the 1950s, when a distinctly Finnish interpretation of modern architecture was formed, with characteristics suited to Finnish topography and climate. The time we live at present can be regarded as the latest highlight, as is evidenced by the increasing interest of international media, critics, historians and others. This book includes articles by six experts of Finnish architecture, five polemic period writings and over 140 building and project descriptions.
