Finn winner

Juha Leiviska, a Finnish architect, has won the Carslberg Architectural Prize, worth 200,000 Ecu (about pounds 166,000). Leiviska beat off strong competition worldwide on the strength of his contribution to regional architecture in his native country over 20 years. Judges, including Peter Davey, editor of the Architectural Review, praised Leiviska's use of light, the way his buildings responded to the form and texture of local topography and his particular sensitivity to social context.
