Finlandia Hall - Finland

When it comes to architecture, I like historical styles, such as Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque, Renaissance and others. I must confess its hard for me to see beauty in modern architecture. Sorry Mr. Aalto, but I really don't like this!
The card was sent by Damien who visited Finland last January. 

The Finlandia Hall is a congress and event venue in the centre of Helsinki on the Töölönlahti Bay. The building, which was designed by architect Alvar Aalto, was completed in 1971. 
Finlandia Hall is one of the most iconic buildings designed by world-renowned Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto, and was planned from the ground up for visitors and a wide range of events. In addition to his overall vision for the building, Aalto designed many of its details, such as the lights and door handles, creating something very unique in the process. The building complements the surrounding park and forms an almost unbroken link with the local landscape. The interior includes many typical Aalto features, such as asymmetrical forms and natural materials and colours. - in:
