SHORELINES. RESIDENTIAL AREAS BY THE WATER
Seas, lakes and rivers make up hundreds of kilometres of shoreline in the densely populated capital of Finland. The proximity of water and great diversity of beaches is a defining element of Helsinki’s urban identity. The abundance of waterfront land in public use is also a special asset enhancing their appeal and livability. The book provides a lively, readable account of the history, present and future of waterfront living in Finland. Spanning from the 1700s to the present day, the featured sites provide a rich sample of high-quality architecture and attractive residential settings praised by their inhabitants. The book shows why the chosen 19 sites are especially well-loved and appealing to residents. The book is available in Finnish and English versions. Writers: Juulia Kauste, Juhana Lahti, Panu Lehtovuori and Eija Rauske.
