TWO MODERN CHAPELS AND TURKU CEMETERY

Two modern chapels in the same cemetery from different decades and stories from the cemetery.

After we visit Erik Bryggmans Chapel of Resurrection we walk through the cemetery to Holy Cross Chapel, which is designed by Pekka Pitkänen. On our way guide will show you interesting parts of modern cemetery art.

Erik Bryggman (7 February 1891, Turku – 21 December 1955, Turku) was a Finnish architect. He studied architecture at Helsinki University of Technology, completing his studies in 1916. He worked in Helsinki before starting his own office in Turku in 1923. In 1927 he started to collaborate with architect Alvar Aalto, and together they became pioneers in Finland in modernist architecture.
