1000 x European Architecture is a massive catalogue that presents 1000 contemporary architectural projects from all over Europe. The contents have been divided geographically into sections: Northern Europe (Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Ireland and United Kingdom); Western Europe (Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands); Central Europe (Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria), Eastern Europe (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Romania, Russia) and Southern Europe (Italy, Cyprus, Croatia, Greece, Slovenia, Turkey).
The book questions whether there actually exists such a thing as “European architecture” and if so, what its characteristics are. 1000 x European Architecture gives a kaleidoscopic outlook to the similarities and differences in architecture in the various parts of Europe. There are 18 Finnish examples – such as the Karviaistie Special School by Kirsti Sivén and Asko Takala, the Sanoma House by SARC, the Kupla (Bubble) lookout tower by Ville Hara, to name a few. The performing arts centre Kilden designed by ALA Architects in Kristiansand, Norway, is also presented.
