temppeliaukio church in helsinki!

this is one of the most impressive buildings i've ever seen in real life: the temppeliaukio church in töölö district of helsinki, completed in 1969 and designed by brothers timo suomalainen + tuomo suomalainen.

you can read about the building from wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Temppeliaukio_church

i just happen to have a good set of photos i took in october '08 so i thought: why not share them!

firstly, two scanned postcards to give you the overall impression:





and here are my photos.
