For decades, the international professional press has described Finlandâ€™s architecture as characterized by clear-cut forms, logical use of natural materials, attention to detail, careful construction, and sympathetic approach to the landscape. In Constructing a Legend, architect-researcher Petra Ceferin takes a critical, strikingly fresh look at the international image surrounding Finnish architecture today, and more importantly, what lies behind it, and why this particular image emerged. The Museum of Finnish Architecture was created, in part, to promote Finnish architecture abroad. Employing a series of carefully crafted exhibition tours comprised largely of photographs, the museum strove to define and disseminate the best architecture the country had to offer.
