The Museum of Finnish Architecture was created, in part, to promote Finnish architecture abroad. Employing a series of carefully crafted exhibition tours comprised largely of photographs, the museum strove to define and disseminate the best architecture the country had to offer. Both the name and work of the renown Alvar Aalto lent credibility and celebrity to these events, capturing the imagination of the public and the press alike. Petra Ceferin sees this exhibition-process as the making of a legend, a rich story handed down from the past, the truth of which she questions with a rare mix of revealing empirical research and a sharp sense of investigative irony.
