With an introduction on the Finnish summer home tradition that provides historical context, Finnish Summer Houses presents 20 homes designed by Finnish architects, including Alvar Aalto and Eliel Saarinen, for their own use. Unpublished and archival images, plans and descriptive text show how these small projects incorporate the essence of each architect's better-known work.

The pictures in this book are so inspiring. I would love to have a summer cottage like one of these. Perhaps someday. Read full review

Review: Finnish Summer Houses

User Review  - James Moes - Goodreads

a) Some architectural modernism ages better than others. b) It's good to build with friends. c) Experimentation is healthy. Kristian Gullichsen's barn-like Holiday Home in Hiittinen and Alvar Aalto's Muuratsalo Experimental House were my two favourites. Read full review
