A Blow for Modern Architecture - 1 August 2016

A Blow for Modern Architecture - 1 August 2016
In this view, I have taken a detail of the 1932 bronze Nyrkkeilijät/The Boxers (1932) by Johannes Haapasalo in Helsinki in juxtaposition with a building in Paasivuorenkatu.

The resulting image is intended as a comment on the frequent dullness of modern architecture of which there are countless examples in the Finnish capital.

Shame his punch can't knock the building over. Bland is now the norm. Great picture.
