The Sámi Cultural Centre Sajos has been built on the banks of the River Juutuanjoki in Inari in the north-eastern corner of Finnish Lapland.
The building looks like it does not have a single right angle in it. The walls bent between the four extended arms of the building are like coves, while the large windows let in the surrounding nature in the form of light and raw materials.
The dark facade is clad with spruce, while the interior is mainly of light pinewood.
The word Sajos is old Inari Sámi, and it means ”base” or ”settlement”.
