Wooden Helsinki is a unique and valuable guide to Helsinki’s wooden architecture. Architect Jussi Vepsäläinen and photographer Jussi Tiainen have produced a copiously illustrated, easy-to-use paperback that adds to the idea of Helsinki as a wooden city. Most of the more than a hundred sites are easily accessible public buildings. The short texts provide interesting details about each of the buildings, which date from the 18th century right up to the present.
