Fine homage to Revell from the MFA archives

Petteri Kummala from the Museum of Finnish Architecture drawings collection has put on display a beautiful installation to pay homage to architect Viljo Revell. The 3rd floor landing calls to examine Revell's original drawing for his own family house to Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The house project was designed between 1959–61 following the winning of the international competition to design the Toronto City Hall in 1958. The 8th of November, 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of Revell's passing.The installation is on display until the first days of January, 2015.
