1149. Riihimäki, Maauimala

Dear Martti,

The Riihimäki water tower, built from August 1951 to
August 1952, was Erik Bryggman's last significant 
project. The tower is a multiuse building that 
originally included, besides a large water reservoir, 
a museum located at the lower levels, and a scenic 
cafeteria on the roof. The large windows on the lower 
part and the small square apertures of the reservoir 
above are consistent with the disparity of uses.
Along with the water tower, the Yrjö Lindegren's and
Aulis Blomstedt's sports facility and swimming pool 
are seen still under construction on this aerial picture.
