Helsinki is an architectural hub between East and West. The influence of nearby St Petersburg is just as palpable as that of European neo-classicism of the early nineteenth century. Creativity is a pervasive feature of this Nordic magnet for friends of good design and appreciation of Finnish architecture has reached an unprecedented international scale. This guide introduces more than 170 buildings and illustrates that there is far more to Finnish architecture than the works of well-known heroes such as Alvar Aalto, Heikki Sir�n or Viljo Revell.
