Product description

LAHDELMA & MAHLAMÄKI ARCHITECTS: Works presents for the first time a survey of selected built work of the Lahdelma & Mahlamäki partnership, from their early work in the 1990s to the present day, introducing the quality of that work to a larger international audience.

Editor Peter MacKeith’s introduction identifies critical themes and design strategies of the Lahdelma & Mahlamäki practice, as it has developed from a rich Finnish heritage of architecture and building culture. Further essays highlight the Museum in Warsaw, the Finnish Maritime Center, the Lohja (Finland) Municipal Library, the Finnish Folk Arts Center, and the Finnish Forest Museum, among a range of fifteen significant public commissions. An interview with the architects opens discussions of design method, education, competition designs, museum design and the future of Finnish architecture.

Throughout the monograph, Lahdelma and Mahlamäki’s commitment to architecture as a public, spatial, material art of building is well emphasized, alongside their equal commitment to social engagement through civic and cultural commissions.
