‘Mind-Building’ tells the story of public libraries and library architecture in Finland. Featuring seventeen buildings from different periods, grouped under specific themes and curated by architectural critic and scholar Anni Vartola, it presents texts, drawings, and photographs of each, plus extracts from various sources such as newspapers, competition briefs, and architectural reviews. The oldest library is the Rikhardinkatu Library in Helsinki (1881), the first in the Nordic region built specifically for the public. Also included are Viipuri Library (1935) by Alvar Aalto, Tampere Main Library Metso (1986) by Raili and Reima Pietiläknown, and Turku Main Library (2007) by JKMM Architects.
