Along the summer we've been delighted to see a lot of blog posts and newspaper articles popping up in connection to Helsinki Beyond Dreams. Here's a link
to an extensive review of Helsinki Beyond Dreams by Brendan Crain from Project for Public Spaces
. This text really captures well the essential message of the book, which applies to many cities around the world, not only Helsinki.
"Helsinki Beyond Dreams illustrates how LQC [lighter, quicker, cheaper] interventions add up to a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts by generating a more robust public discussion around public space. For that alone – never mind the crisp writing and beautiful illustrations – the book is well worth a read."
Another blog post well worth reading is an interview
by Pop-Up City
, unfolding the background of Helsinki Beyond Dreams and offering more insight into some of the projects presented in the book. For Helsinki enthusiasts, Pop-Up City offers a lot more of Helsinki-related articles too.
"This was just about the most fun I have ever had doing a project," says Sac Magique, the fantastic illustrator behind the cover and main illustrations of Helsinki Beyond Dreams. Have a look here
at his magical works.
