Finnish summer houses by Jari Jetsonen( )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Summer is when Finland is at its spellbinding best. Emerging from a seven-month long winter, Finns head outdoors to savor the magical light of the all-too-brief Scandinavian summer. Cityscapes give way to pristine lakes, endless forests, and idyllic seaside vistas. The Finnish summer house offers a unique opportunity for their owners to relax, get back in touch with nature, and enjoy outdoor activities such as boating, swimming, and hiking. Not surprisingly, the architecture of the Finnish summer house occupies an almost mythic, even mystical, place in the hearts of their inhabitants as well as their architects. Indeed, many Finnish architects regard the design of their own summer residence or weekend studio as one of their most important works. For them, the summer house is not only a place to spend leisure time, but also a chance to study specific technical details and experiment with new spatial concepts." "Finnish Summer Houses presents in detail twenty villas, cottages, and cabins by architects such as Eliel Saarinen, Oiva Kallio, Alvar Aalto, and Juhani Pallasmaa, among many others. Authors Jari and Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen use contemporary photographs, archival images, drawings, and plans to illustrate the diversity found in the designs of Finnish summer residences. From Lars Sonck's Lasses Villa (1895), with its traditional farmhouse elements, and Alvar Aalto's Muuratsalo Experimental House (1952-54) to Erkki Kairamo's sparse Villa Aulikki (1995-2003), which seems to grow out of its landscape, the works in this book are of a highly personal nature; indeed, most of the summer houses are still used by the architect or the families of their children. The very best examples of these fantastic summer homes are collected here, making Finnish Summer Houses an inspiration for anyone dreaming about a summer home of their own."--Jacket
Saarinen houses by Jari Jetsonen( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The iconic Finnish-American father-son architects Eliel and Eero Saarinen may be most famous for buildings such as the Helsinki Central Railway Station (Eliel), the Cranbrook Academy of Arts (Eliel), The Gateway Arch in St. Louis (Eero), the TWA terminal in JFK Airport (Eero), and many other landmarks, but they also designed a number of remarkable houses, including Eero Saarinen's Miller House, one of the most significant examples of modern domestic architecture in the United States. Eliel and Eero Saarinen: Houses presents seventeen of the houses designed by the Saarinens, from Eliel's early twentieth-century Villa Pulkanranta, an eclectic mix of local Finnish design traditions and international influences; to Eliel's famous Art-Deco house at Cranbrook; to the architects' collaborative Koebel House, with its strong, horizontal lines; to the Loja Saarinen House, which Eero designed for his mother"--

Sacral space : modern Finnish churches by Jari Jetsonen( Book )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Finnish modern church buildings appeal to the visitor with their minimalist character. The essential strength of their architecture lies in the presence of light and nature. The buildings and their interiors are attuned to the passing of each day and the change of seasons." "Sacral Space beckons the reader to step into twelve churches and chapels, each one of which represents Finnish church architecture at its best: The Resurrecton Chapel by Erik Bryggman; Otaniemi Chapel by Kaija and Heikki Siren; The Church of the Three Crosses by Alvar Aalto; Vatiala Chapel by Viljo Revell; Hyvinkaa Church by Aarno Ruusuvuori; Kaleva Church by Raili and Reima Pietila; Temppeliaukio Church by Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen; The Chapel of the Holy Cross by Pekka Pitkanen; Olari Church by Kapy and Simo Paavilainen; Kauniainen Church by Kristian Gullichsen; St. John's Church Mannisto by Juha Leiviska; and St. Henry's Ecumenical Chapel by Matti Sanaksenaho." "Jari Jetsonen's photographs, the architects' drawings, photographs taken during the construction, architect Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen's texts and Professor Fred Thompson's accompanying article bring out the uniqueness and history of each church building and also tell something essential about the nature of Finnish sacral architecture."--Jacket

Alvar Aalto libraries by Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aalto's libraries have served various needs. Some of them are public libraries, such as those in Seinäjoki, Rovaniemi and Wolfsburg. The libraries at the University of Jyväskylä, Helsinki University of Technology and the Mount Angel monastery are scholarly libraries. The libraries in private houses such as Villa Mairea and Maison Carré, offered a tranquil work space. The book also describes the changes in use that the libraries have undergone. In the libraries it was important to create spaces for different kinds of functions and users. In some of them Aalto arranged the functional differences by means of combinations of fan shapes for the main library spaces together with a strict rectangularity for the work rooms. Side by side one encounters visibility and openness and, on the other hand, also sheltered and tranquil places to sit and read. Both natural and artificial light fulfil their respective purposes. Skylights and clerestory windows bring natural light into the core of even deep building frames. Natural light creates a strong positive ambience in the reading and lending halls. The individual lamps on the reading tables in turn create enchanted circles of light. Aalto felt a particular affinity for designing libraries. He himself was interested in literature and reading. Nowadays almost half of all Finns are regular users of libraries, the functions of which, however, have changed and continue to change - in addition to books, many other services have become integral parts of the libraries
