Description

The book presents nine emerging Finnish architecture practices and their stories so far. Their work is newly drawn, and much of it yet to be realised, but their era is about to begin. 208-page book includes an introduction by architect Mikko Heikkinen and an article by architect Meri Louekari and an essay by Art Critic, Professor Mika Hannula. The book is published by Rakennustieto and will be sold world wide.

At Finland, you can buy “Newly Drawn – Emerging Finnish Architects” at Rakennustieto bookstore, (Runeberginkatu 5, 00100 Helsinki) and Artek shop (Pohjoisesplanadi 18, 00130 Helsinki) and the big bookstores such as Akateeminen Bookstore.

As well as presenting the work of the nine offices, the book also includes an introduction by architect Mikko Heikkinen and essays by art critic, professor Mika Hannula and architect Meri Louekari. The key words throughout are: Plurality, Horizontal Networks and the Newly Drawn: “There’s no unity, no illusion of one correct version. Instead of a monolithic stalemate, these nine independent offices manifest loud and proudly the opposite. There’s a plurality of means and ends, a wild variety of views and practices that both converse and compete with each other. It’s a productive and challenging mess that throws off the taken for granted checks and balances for both themselves and anyone that engages in discussion with them.” (Mika Hannula)
