UED magazine’s theme issue 045 2010/08 (城市 ,环境, 设计) showcases the younger generation of Finnish architectural firms and their recent projects. The Urban Environment Design UED magazine (en.uedmagazine.net) was founded in 2004 and it’s organised by the Tianjin University school of architecture and Liaoning Science and Technology Press in China.
The presented architectural offices are JKMM, Lassila Hirvilammi (OOPEAA), K2S, Verstas, Anttinen & Oiva, Hollmén-Reuter-Sandman, Avanto, ALA Architects, and NOW. There are also some backgrounding articles such as an interview with JKMM’s Teemu Kurkela, and some reflections on the nature and ethos of Finnish architecture in general (in Chinese). The project presentations include all the key works by the presented firms such as the Turku Main Library, Kärsämäki Church, Kaisa Library, Kupla Lookout Tower, Kilden Theatre and Concert Hall and many others. The texts are in Chinese and partly in English.
