Self portrait in library window
Yes, it's still raining in Turku.
No manipulation or double exposure needed. As you can see from the reflection, Turku's new main library has triple glazing in its huge windows. That does not change my opinion that its architect farts in the general direction of energy conservation. Huge, heat-leaking walls of glass are a bit silly in a country with an average annual temperature barely above freezing. They've been all the rage among the designers of pompous buildings in Finland lately. We are addicted to sunlight, you see.
