Sculptures of Helsinki #17

Just like the University of Helsinki metro station, Ruoholahti metro station is one large piece of art. The station is decorated with white and blue ceramic tiles that culminates with a stepped plinth on the platform level that is characteristic of a piazza. The station opened in 1993 with the installation by artist Juhana Blomstedt.

From another angle take a look HERE.

You can find almost 500 outdoor sculptures, pieces of environmental art and historical monuments in Helsinki and they are accessible to everyone. See more and search through the database at HAMhelsinki.fi.
