Glass and brick art in Tikkurila


The façade art designed by Partanen & Lamusuo is being completed in Tikkurila. Street-level glass artworks made by digital printing are already on display. The artworks are like a modern stained glass. In the artwork the visual ensemble made up of various Christian symbols opens the message of the Christian faith with regard to locality.

- Through the glass walls, the church opens to the outside world. To the artwork we wanted to bring Christian symbolism from the early days of Christianity to the present day and include the history of Tikkurila, Vantaa parishes and also a glimpse into the future, says Heikki Lamusuo
