A revised and updated edition of this readable and entertaining insider’s look at Finnish Architecture. In it the author considers the importance of the 1990s decade to Finnish Architecture. Significant for new buildings like The Washington Embassy, The Museum of Contemporary Art and the recognition of the work of Juha Leiviskä, the author also goes on to asess the state of the architectural institutions, theory and criticism within the country. The book closes on a constructive note, opening up towards a freedom and plurality emerging in the projects and work of many younger and lesser known architects.
