April 24: Southern Finland tour – Turun Linna 2
More exploration inside Turun Linna.
A pretty complex niche.
A 3-torus of rooms.
Shelf: utilitarian in detail, but perfectly consonant with the masonry walls.
A rather dramatic throne within a display room.
Totally sweet Bryggman-designed (I assume) vault in (I think) the attic of the keep.
The combination of the original medieval construction with Bryggman's well-integrated elegant, lighter insertions is almost too great for my critical-regional brain to handle.
Oh look a bunch more niches.
The coatroom area beyond the lobby.
A skyway between the two sides of the keep.
Kind of a fisheye thing happening in this shot.
Back out in the front courtyard.
The front of the bailey.
From the inside of the porch at the front of the keep; stairs descend to the courtyard on both sides of the porch, but not in front.
