Product description

Architectural photographer Jussi Tiainen has photographed Finnish contemporary architecture for already 30 years and has over the decades polished his recognizable style to the point of perfection. For this book he has photographed Finnish wooden architecture from recent years. The ten selected buildings are: the Metla Building, the Finnforest Modular Office, St. Henry Ecumenical Art Chapel, Kärsämäki Church, the Hösmärinpuisto School and Daycare Centre, the Leskenlehti Community Building, the Miilukangas Training Centre, the Hiekkahovi Conference and Holiday Facility, the Porvoon Jokineito housing area and Kotilo house.
The carefully considered angles of the photographs, the change in the light and shadows as well as the clean and crisp colours emphasize the natural beauty of wood as a material. At the same time, the pictures convey the architecture of the building – the strong clear lines and refined detailing of the buildings.
In addition to the photographs, the book also includes site plans, floor plans, sections and short presentation texts written by the architects of the buildings.
