With an equal amount of text and pictures, those who love to read as well as visual learners will love this book. Learn the architectural design trends and tricks of ten decades with Finnish Architecture 1900-2000.This book highlights Finnish architecture of the whole 20th century as a chronologically proceeding story. This work presents numerous buildings of architectural significance against the background of general developments in architecture with reference to the works of over 200 architects. Although this book covers the whole of Finland in geographical terms, the main focus is on the Helsinki Metropolitan Region where construction was more active. Alongside public building activities, such as administrative buildings, churches, hospitals, traffic terminals, and sports, cultural and educational facilities, there are numerous examples of architecture for business and industry. Housing development is discussed from whole suburbs and sections of cities to individual apartment buildings and summer villas. Most of the colour photographs of this richly illustrated work belong to the photographer Simo Rista's significant collection of transparencies, which the Museum of Finnish Architecture acquired in 2005. English translation Jüri Kokkonen, graphic design Salla Kiehelä.
