Good living for all. From the 1940s, Lauttasaari was developed as a desirable place for Helsinki residents to live. On this tour you will see some of the many contributions of women architects to Lauttasaaris built environment and learn about the new building techqniques and principles of standardization that informed postwar residential building in Finland. The tour focuses on buildings from the 1940s through the 1960s.

Architecture walking tours series is written and hosted by Gayle McKeen. She holds a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Chicago and has taught at universities in the United States and the United Kingdom.
