Architects Kaija and Heikki Siren belong to the generation of great Finnish modernists. Their prolific career started already in the 1950s with their designs for the Otaniemi campus area, most notably the internationally acclaimed Otaniemi Chapel which was completed in 1957 and which was awarded the Carlo Scarpa Prize for Gardens by Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche in 2009. The scale of their office portfolio ranges from small, private projects to large developments located not only in Finland but also in countries such as Austria, Japan, France, Iraq and Saudi-Arabia.
This monograph Kaija + Heikki Siren Arkkitehtuuria / Arkitektur / Architects / Architekten / Architectes (Otava, 1977; edited by Erik Bruun and Sara Popovits) introduces the architect couple and their principal works to the international audience. The introduction has been written by Jürgen Joedicke and the insightful essay “The Architecture of Kaija and Heikki Siren” is by architect Helmut Borcherdt. The book includes a complete list of works until the late 1970s. The beautiful and informative book has been richly illustrated with high-quality photographs and architectural drawings.
