Alvar Aalto's Viipuri Library in Vyborg, Russia, built between 1927 and 1935, has recently been restored and the committee responsible for the restoration work has been awarded The World Monuments Fund/Knoll Modernism Prize. This modern landmark features some of Aalto's trademark design elements such as the sky-lighted roof, undulating wooden ceilings and a glass-enclosed staircase.

"Seascapes" is an extensive study of the ocean as the tides move in and out and waves crash against the shore. Created by Helsinki-based photographer Antti Viitala, every composition follows the same structure where overcast skies and deep blue water blend together at a straight horizon line, which cuts directly across the center.
"Unstable Matter is kinetic sculpture by Finnish artists Tommi Grönlund and Petteri Nisunen, a.k.a. Grönlund-Nisunen. The moving table contains thousands of small ball bearings that move and crash within the confines of a giant wobbly table, sort of a modern take on a rain stick." via Colossal The table is part of several kinetic and magnetized works by the duo that were recently on view at Esther Schipper in Berlin.
"Photographer Janne Parviainen has been experimenting with a fun form of photographic light painting that resembles 3D topographical maps. Exposure times can take over 30 minutes as he carefully moves through the room with a light “tracing” every surface and object." via Colossal
