For famed Finnish architects Eliel Saarinen and Alvar Aalto the summer residence was a space for experimentation. Coming out of a harsh and long winter, Summer in Finland is a time to connect with the outdoors, and summer homes reflect that. Finnish Summer Homes details 20 houses and cottages through contemporary and archival photography. It is a journey through the mind of some of the most important Finnish architects and an interesting look at the spatial concerns of modern architecture. Accompanying the book is an exhibition at the Finnish Embassy in Washington, DC. Available now from Princeton Architectural Press.
