892. Tampere. Tammerfors.














Dear Ossi,

The Tampere Bus Station (Tampereen Linja-autoasema)
is one of the finest examples of early functionalist
architecture in Finland. Although partially bombed by the
Soviets during the Winter War of 1940, the building has been
preserved in its original function and form since it was
built in 1938. With its simple and elegant white facades,
flat roofs, long strips of ribbon windows, and minimal
decoration, the Tampere Bus Station was fully restored in
2008 to recover its original appearance.

Regards,
R
