Photo Column: Fundamentals of Facade Design – A Barn in Evitskog

Text Tuomas Uusheimo Images Tuomas Uusheimo

A few years ago, while driving to Evitskog, I noticed a barn standing at the edge of a field. The rather unusual, minimalist modern design of the barn’s facade reminded me of the assignments I had drawn as a young student – endless attempts to shape the facade into a work of art. Now I think I understand that my starting point for the task was all wrong. Form follows function. ↙
