An extensive monograph of the Finnish architect Juha Leiviskä (born 1936), winner of the 1995 Carlsberg Prize for Architecture.
Juha Leiviskä is one of the most highly estimated contemporary Finnish architects. He is especially famous for his sacral buildings, such as Myyrmäki Church in Vantaa and Männistö Church in Kuopio, and for his exquisite use of light as an architectural element. The book offers extensive presentations of 43 buildings and projects and a complete catalogue of works, both with introductory texts by the architect. In addition it contains Kenneth Frampton’s article “Landform, Fabric and Light: The Architecture of Juha Leiviskä” and the architect’s autobiographical notes.
