The role of Clas­si­cal Greek ar­chi­tec­ture as a source of in­spi­ra­tion for Finnish ar­chi­tects com­prises the sub­ject of one of the Be­naki Mu­seum’s Pireos Street an­nex’s cur­rent tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tions. The con­nec­tion is ev­i­denced through sketches and photos made by Finnish ar­chi­tects who vis­ited Greece in the 19th and 20th cen­turies. The ex­hi­bi­tion, ti­tled “Finnish Ar­chi­tects – Gaz­ing upon Greece,” show­cases works by G.T.C. Chiewitz (1815-62), Jacob Ahren­berg (1847-1914), Usko Nys­troem (1861-1925), Hild­ing Ekelund (1893-1984) and Al­var Aalto (1898-1976). The ex­hi­bi­tion, which is sup­ported by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion and Cul­ture of Fin­land, runs through Fe­bru­ary 12.
