This monograph presents for the first time a survey of selected projects of the Lahdelma & Mahlamäki partnership, from their early work in the 1990s to the present day, introducing it to a larger international audience and placing it into the larger international context. Peter MacKeith’s critical introduction and analyses of significant cultural and civic projects identify themes and intentions of the built work and projects, and places those projects within both the Finnish architectural context and that of the larger architectural culture.
