14th June 2019
“Käräjäkivet” is an online periodical publication of thought and criticism that was born around a proposal which was never accomplished, concerning the Saivaara Monument, elaborated in 1978 by the legendary Finnish artist Tapio
This publication intends to accomplish, not in form but in content, the idea of Tapio Wirkkala for the Saivaara Monument: the creation of a place where men of all races and colors can gather together to think. For that purpose, an online platform was created where different invited authors will gather together through texts, illustrated and edited in small booklets, expressing their thoughts on architecture, art and culture in general, with the Saivaara Monument as the main driver.
“Käräjäkivet” is edited by the architects Márcia Nascimento and Nuno Costa.
Finnish word käräjäkivet means “court stones” or “circle of stones”: places of judgment (originally iron age graves), where judgments were held and justice carried out. In
(Finnish National Board of Antiquities).
