Through a constructive way of looking at the timing of architecture, the author explores the myths of a critical history. These ideas are made more concrete and specific by localising the inquiry into a forgotten building outside Helsinki, Espoonlahti Church (1980), by architects Timo and Tuoma Suomalainen. To stimulate reflection on these issues, exploring the circumstances of this ignored building, this virtually ignored pair of architects, the book tries to sketch out new points of contact between the ordinary and exuberant, between history and criticism, between reason and faith, between dis-encouragement and propoganda, between grace and architecture.
