Jussi Jännes – Dream of a garden city in Studio Suuronen at Exhibition Centre WeeGee and online: nayttelykeskusweegee.fi
Jussi Jännes (1922 Helsinki–1967 Las Palmas, Spain) was a garden architect whose career peaked when he designed the landscape for Tapiola. Jännes designed parks in Tapiola, the green structures in its centre and the gardens of blocks of flats and private houses. His hand continues to be strongly visible in Tapiola.
For the exhibition, Jännes’ Tapiola designs have been digitised from the collections of the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the Espoo City Museum, some of which are now on display for the first time ever.
The exhibition has been produced by the City of Espoo’s Event and Cultural Services.
