Joensuun Elli Residential Building

Finland

The facades of the building feature an impressive work of art realised in Graphic Concrete. Entitled “Sisters”, the design is based on three paintings by artist Maria Mughal: “Poem”, “Nature” and “Helen of Troy”. Mughal’s original inspiration for the series of works was based on concrete as a material – often considered gray and cold, even impersonal. The works of art on the end facades of the complex are the very opposite – colourful and large 3 x 3,8-metre paintings. The artist wanted the female figures of the paintings to make direct contact with viewers.
