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.

Regards,
R
