Finnish architecture is perhaps not so well known as that of Switzerland, Italy, Denmark and Sweden, yet Finland has brought to realization the municipal improvements of which city planners and home builders in other countries still dream. The purpose of this volume is to give an idea of the high standards of national, regional and local planning in Finland as well as to show the beauty of Finnish dwellings. Readers will discover new ideas for home construction and invaluable material which can be adapted to suit local needs. Blueprints and models drawn to scale, large photographs and detailed plans make up a large part of the book.
