May 4: Viikki Church
The class took a tour of the community of Viikki to the northeast, starting with the church.
On the way there: the Rautatieasema tower covered by a picture of itself. Meta!
We went through a quite formally laid out cemetery on the way from the bus stop to Viikki.
The front plaza and bell tower of the church.
A lone clerestory among shingly volumes.
The screeny front doorway.
The nave of the church, with a lovely finely trabeated structure.
Detail right next to the windows.
The organ looks a tiny bit like the Sibelius Monument.
Seat accommodation holes.
Behind the organ.
Inside the organ.
The view out toward the preserved land to the south.
Closeup on the wooden rainscreen cladding the church.
Trellises + plants uninterested in them at the moment.
All sorts of covers.
