Wat je gaat doen

Helsinki is a gem for architecture enthusiasts. It is difficult to find another urban space that houses a wide range of architectural styles like Helsinki; neoclassical, gothic revival, Art Nouveau, Jugendstil, Nordic classicism, modernism, functionalism, and contemporary styles in a compact city centre. Different historical periods left their marks on Helsinki, however it is easy to miss these great works of world renowned architects (from Engel to Saarinen, from Aalto to Siren and Revell) in ordinary city tours. We will start with the old center of the city, visiting Helsinki Cathedral and National Library of Finland designed by Engel, the most influential architect in Helsinki in the first half of 19th century. We will then visit 3 important works of world famous architect Alvar Aalto (Stora Enso HQ, Academic Bookstore and Rautatalo). We will continue with Eliel Saarinen's Central Railway station. On our way, we will stop by two important libraries, KaisaTalo (Anttinen Oiva) and Oodi (ALA) and I'll explain the unique library culture in Finland. Strolling through important buildings such as the Music Hall (LPR), Kiasma (Holl), Finlandia Hall (Aalto), National Museum of Finland (Saarinen), we will make up our way to The Rock Church (Suomalainen). On our return to downtown, we will head to The Glass Palace (Revell), Amos Rex (JKMM) and Chapel of Silence (K2S).

I have a bachelor degree from Faculty of Architecture, Department of City Planning (METU, Ankara, 2001). I have worked as a city planner and urban designer in public and private sectors. I'm currently a PhD student (Urban Studies/Social Policy) in University of Helsinki. I wanted to combine my love for Helsinki with my knowledge and research about the history, culture and architecture of this beautiful city, and share it with a wider audience, so I became a professional tour guide! I have been doing history, architecture and nature walking tours for over two years.

I can highly recommend Emek. He is an expert in architecture - I was interested in Jugendstil, and Emek adapted his tour to my interest. I was the only guest, it was easy to socialize with Emek, and we had a great time together. I learned a lot of Finnish history, and I really enjoyed every minute.

Emek knows his subject well and has a ton of anecdotes to tell about architecture, but also about Finnish culture and history. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it. Adapting the program to what I had already visited and what I was more interested in was a very nice touch.
