Exploring the beauty of Finnish modern church buildings, this study demonstrates how they appeal to the visitor with their minimalist character. The essential strength of their architecture is illustrated within the presence of light and nature, and the buildings and their interiors are depicted as attuned to the passing of each day and the change of seasons. Conducting a tour through twelve churches and chapels from the 1940s to 1990s, this examination includes the Resurrection Chapel by Erik Bryggman, the Otaniemi Chapel by Kaija and Heikki Siren, the Church of the Three Crosses by Alvar Aalto, and more. Construction photographs, architects’ drawings, and commentary are included, and an accompanying article commenting on the uniqueness and history of each church building is also featured, revealing the essentials of Finnish sacral architecture.
