April 19: Katajanokka Jugend 1
The real meat of the walkabout commenced once I was back on Katajanokka; I walked every Jugend street there.
At the head of the neighborhood, on the Uspenski side, are a couple of buildings that I find iconic, perhaps due to their location; e.g. this one, named Aeolus, designed by Selim Lindqvist.
The view up Luotsikatu (Pilot St).
This is Tallberg, designed by Gesellius-Lindgren-Saarinen, which faces Aeolus across Luotsikatu.
The Luotsikatu face of Aeolus.
Composition in Sun and Shade, 2009.
This means "Key Gallery," and its logo is pretty neat.
Further up Luotsikatu.
The name of this building is Eol; it was also designed by Gesellius-Lindgren-Saarinen. That balcony is impressively beefy.
One of the metallic-tower buildings from before, I think, with a peeking streetlight.
A sporty number I happened upon on Laivastokatu (Fleet Street) along the north shore.
Little bumpout park on the north shore that I'd walked by plenty of times but rarely seen from above like this.
I think this one must be named Katajaniemi ("Cape Juniper," essentially a synonym for Katajanokka).
Quite a composition of curves here.
The sharpest edge of the Wellamo tower with some last sun.
The back side of Wellamo, giving a better idea of the shape of the tower.
A mysterious portal along the lower part of Laivastokatu. The entrance to the Wellamo restaurant is just behind the left-hand piece of the portal.
Foundational rock at the south edge of Wellamo. I'm still really curious about that white line.
This is, I think, the inland street face of Wellamo, along Vyökatu (Belt St).
A more rectilinear bit of Jugend, still quite fetching.
Tiles are an infrequently used material on the Jugend buildings, but are generally a welcome addition.
Tiles detail: a pleasant mix of matte and glossy surfaces.
Oddly tusk-like, yes?
Vertical articulation, horizontal sun.
