CONSTRUCTING A LEGEND: THE INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITIONS OF FINNISH ARCHITECTURE 1957-1967
Why the book is worth reading?
A book by a Slovenian architect, theorist and scholar is a seminal work that discusses the making of the prevailing image of modernist Finnish architecture. Ceferin examined a very specific area: how a group of architects and associated professionals set out to propagate an image of Finnish architecture abroad. Her case is the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the photography and exhibition policy at international exhibitions between 1957 and 1967. It was through these exhibitions, Ceferin suggests, that an identifiable image of “Finnish Architecture” was first created.
