Tapiolan Kirkko - Aarne Ervi 1965

In today's post I want to show you the very nice church you would be able to find in Tapiola keskus, specifically in Kirkkopolku 6, next to the Sokos Hotel and the swimming-hall. Design by Aarne Ervi in 1965, most of it made of concrete, has an intense atmosphere and many details that worth being studied. Actually since I was there I would like to design a church, hopefully I will.

So it was yesterday after lunch that we decided to have a view of it and take a bunch of pictures as far as we are in Easter and also a bit of meditation was needed for the facts that this year have surrounded my live. You can reach it easily on your way to Tapiola, buses 15, 10 and 550 (from Otaniemi) and the stop is the one before Tapiola keskus (where the Stockman is). Walking takes about 20 minutes, by bike less than 15 and you will be there.
