Helsinki's famous concert hall, designed by Alvar Aalto. It's still a neat place with cool architecture, but sadly the acoustics aren't great, so the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra recently moved to the new Helsingin musiikkitalo.
ALVAR AALTO’S MASTERPIECE Finlandia Hall is a masterpiece by the renowned Finnish architect. Alvar Aalto used Carrara marble on the exterior as well as inside the building. He viewed marble as an important link with Mediterranean culture, which he wanted to bring to Finland. Finland's climate caused the marble to warp and break, however, and the building has had to be resurfaced. The most recent refurbishing began in 1990 and lasted nearly a decade. It was finally completed in 1999
