Discovered during our Helsinki World Design Week visit, Helsinki Central Railway station is an early Art Nouveau decorative masterpiece designed by Eliel Saarinen (1873 – 1950).

We have visited this beautiful railway station during its everyday life and were amazed by this monumental civic space designed in 1904 and completed in 1919. Decorative purity characterize this architecture completed in grey Finnish granite and red roof tiles. The architecture is very Scandinavian and predicts the organic style of the postwar era invented by Saarinen's son Eero in the USA.

Monumental forms together with decorative fittings create unique national architecture from the Helsinki Central Railway station.
