Description

Welcome to Finland, a young land of rapid aging, where newly founded institutions are already outmoded and geographic impediments are a constant crippling agent. As part of Ingo Niermann’s Solution Series, architect Martti Kalliala, writer and curator Jenna Sutela and architect Tuomas Toivonen, address the Nordic country’s numerous predicaments.

The three authors offer readers eight-and-a-half solutions to their native country’s quandaries, ranging from the absurd (the implementation of fiction-mongering emissaries to boost tourism) to the earnest, if far-reaching (the re-purposing of the country to host nuclear waste). Solution Finland elucidates the northern country’s modern history as a nation under construction, proposing that its identity remain a malleable myth, in which designing a more tenable future is the conduit for crucial adaptation.

Solution Series edited by Ingo Niermann.
