This catalog was produced for the Finnish Architecture exhibition that took place in the Hague, the Netherlands between 28 April and 19 May 1975. The catalog used the same layout, typography and printing films as for the Turin exhibition in 1973–1974. The book showcases the best projects of Finnish architecture from the 1920s to the 1970s as per shortlisted by the Museum of Finnish Architecture.  The members of the exhibition jury were architects Veijo Martikainen, Eric Adlercreutz, Osmo Lappo, Juha Leiviskä, Kirmo Mikkola, Pentti Riihelä and Jussi Vepsäläinen together with professor Leonardo Mosso, D.Eng. Matti Ollila and Sir James Maude Richards, a British architectural writer.

The book for the Finnish Architecture exhibition 1975 consists of picture plates of projects that have been presented with black & white photographs and partly also with architectural drawings such as plans, sections, and site layouts. The contents have been divided thematically into three sections: Functionalism (1929–1940), Modern Architecture (1951–1973) and Furniture by Alvar Aalto. The post-1950s projects also include a short description of their architectural principles.
