Suur-Merijoki Manor – the jewel of Finnish art nouveau

Suur-Merijoki Manor in Viipuri Province was a Finnish Art Nouveau masterpiece, a “total work of art” that became one the most famous Finnish homes of its era. The exhibition at Museum of Finnish Architecture reawakens the former glory of the perished manor designed by the young architect trio Herman Gesellius (1874–1916), Armas Lindgren (1874–1929) and Eliel Saarinen (1873–1950).

The exhibition is produced by the Milavida Museum. The version seen at the Museum of Finnish Architecture will highlight original watercolour sketches from the museum’s collections.

Exhibition period: March 6-September 9.
