1 / 1992 - public buildings

The issue is published in Finnish with English summaries of most of the articles.

Silja Rantanen "makes images of paintings and paintings of images, and her paintings on architectural themes deal primarily with the architecture of painting, the architecture of the image." Timo Valjakka discusses about Rantanen's paintings which themselves deal with the nature of painting.

In Finland, especially during the 1980s, architecture for children was interpreted as an architecture of tiny details. The numerous day-care centres built at the time offered architects a free playground. Alvaro Siza is now seeking a less childish expression. A kindergarten designed by Siza is shown on this number.
