Overview

This church designed by professor Aarno Ruusuvuori is situated on Tapionraitti, which leads to the centre of Tapiola. The church, cubic in form, represents a type of architecture, unusual to Finland. The church seems to form its own little world, standing out from its surroundings. The fa├žade is made of concrete, steel and glass. The church is located near the shopping centre area and the Tapiola Garden Hotel. With its fine acoustics the church provides an arena for many musical events in addition to conventional ecclesiastical ones. It is also the home of the world-famous Tapiola Choir. Tapiola Church is a part of the so-called "road church" system in Finland. This means that a traveller can come in to relax, meditate, ask for advice or just have a cup of coffee before carrying on with his or her journey.
