Summers in Finland mean heading out to the country house, often without electricity or running water. Time is spent outdoors and the sun is up around the clock. This book, Finnish Summer Houses by Jari Jetsonen and Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen, captures the best of the outdoor living spirit...

Published by Princeton Architectural Press, Finnish Summer Houses "presents in detail twenty villas, cottages, and cabins by architects such as Eliel Saarinen, Oiva Kallio, Alvar Aalto, and Juhani Pallasmaa, among many others."

For inspiration on the best of outdoor living, Finnish Summer Houses has tons of full-page color photographs and drawings. This book will show you summer house classics like Aalto's Villa Mairea to current takes on summer living by contemporary Finnish architects.
