Church architecture

This site presents interesting images and phenomena concerning church architecture, including samples from my complete pictorial collection of Finnish churches, key European and American projects and examples of church reuse Europe-wide.

I have taken these images over the course of 25 years of field work among churches, mainly as a researcher of the University of Helsinki.

I publish this page as an announcement – but there are also already three introductory pages available online.

This site is meant as a modest but also a more focused and reflective continuation of the Kuvio Image Archive, which ran from 1995 to 2015, peaking 40,000 church images online. Some of the educational material that was available at Kuvio might be migrated to the new environment.

Until later!
