Public CLOSED space

After some time in Berlin followed by some time in Madrid followed by some time in Helsinki, I was feeling a bit "citied out".  

Crowds, cars, pedestrian crossing lights telling when you can and can't go… it was all grinding me down a bit.

And then I found this wonderful little wooden building in the centre of the Finnish capital. It's windowless, minimal and completely silent. Like walking into a womb. You're instantly cut off from the outside world and descend into a surreal calmness.

I sat in there for about ten minutes and definitely felt refreshed when I came out.

Every city should have one...
