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.

Why is Finnish architecture so good? What is its secret? This book is a contemporary mapping of new architecture, the ‘hip’ ‘hop’ and ‘house’ of young Finnish architects and painters. ‘Hip’ might be cool, ‘hop’ might be a transition, and ‘house’ might be the destination of architecture which must envelope us in the future. 40/40 illuminates the differences within shared, blended concerns, whilst at the same time still hinting at something peculiarly talented about the young architects of this part of the world and their uncanny habit of releasing new energies.
