    Amidst a tumultuous history of war between Sweden and Russia, one way in which Finland attempted to establish its distinctive national identity was through architecture. The Finnish Pavilion at the 1900 world's fair was a key example of "nation-building" during a period of imposed Russification. The pavilion is discussed in the early portion of the article. Photographs are also included.
