Tuomivaara Teuvo - Loikka (2008)

The frame of the sculpture is formed by a massive steel plate, where two dimensions transform into three as the reindeer turns and "walks out" of the sculpture. In this way, both the positive and the negative of the reindeer can be seen in the same piece. The figures form a sculptural ensemble that changes when viewed from different angles.

The material used in the piece is a massive steel plate weighing about 600 kilograms. The sculpture is 200 cm by 250 with a thickness of 15 mm. A reindeer shape is cut out from the plate with a welding torch, rotated 45 degrees on its axis and welded back in place. The cut marks and sharp edges have been sanded and rounded. There is no surface treatment and the steel is allowed to rust, giving it a rust brown tint. The cutting and a part of the welding work were done at the workshop of Marttiini Metal Technics Oy, which supported and sponsored the work.

    The Rovaniemi Civic Centre is, alongside Seinäjoki, the only completed urban center designed by Alvar Aalto in Finland. As early as 1961, the preliminary sketches for the library building included two other structures, which ultimately formed a seamlessly interconnected complex for administration and culture. The buildings are arranged in a fan-shaped layout on a park-like square known as Kansalaistori (Citizens' Square). The center's buildings open towards the city center...

  • Alvar Aalto round -in Rovaniemi
    The architectural legacy of Alvar Aalto can be seen in the cityscape of Rovaniemi, both in the city center and a little further away. In the city center, along a walking route, there are five notable sites. A bit further, in Korkalovaara, there is a garden-like residential area called Korkalorinne. Aalto's famous reindeer antler plan, known as the "poronsarviasemakaava" in Finnish, served as the basis for construction during the post-war reconstruction period from 1944 to 1946...
