|Discussion||Turku Cemetery Chapel Commentary
"The Resurrection Chapel in a cemetery on the south-eastern outskirts of the city of Turku is Erik Bryggman's most notable work... It has a concrete frame and brick walls and an asymmetrical plan, with an aisle along only one side of the nave. The side wall within the aisle is wholly of glass, giving a view into foliage and trees."
