Text in Finnish, Swedish, and English. From the Introduction: "It is not the aim of modern architecture merely to furnish industry with authority and publicity, but rather to lend a logical transparency to the work itself, and to provide a place of work worthy of the worker, a fit environment for a free man. An approach like this must mean that the architect must literally put his soul into his work, must become well acquainted with the productive process in question - he should at least be clear on the broad outlines - and he must be consulted sufficiently early in the preparatory stage."
