Architect. He went to school and graduated from high school in Helsinki Svenska Normallyceum in 1906. He reached as soon as the then Polytechnic Institute and began to study architecture. College changed its name to the Technological high school in 1908, and graduated in 1911. 1910, he worked in the office Birger Brunila. In these offices, the young architect was to follow a variety of masters work. For example, when Gustaf Nyström was known as a promoter of academic Neo-Renaissance, Selim A. Lindqvist, in turn, built in the later rationalist style. Lindqvist was eager to try out new materials and construction techniques. In October 1913, he headed overseas. He had received a scholarship for young engineers and trainees from March to May 1914 for three months of the famous German architect Friedrich von Thierschin professor at Munich. In that same summer, he began his specialization Munich University of Technology. Although Thiersch and many other German architects favored during that time still mostly historical styles, modern architecture began stripped-shapes is now starting to appear in the European architecture. After returning to Finland, he became one of the most important representatives of the Finnish functionalism. His architecture shape, material quality and the relationship between building elements combine to be a premeditated, harmonious whole. Juslén won the third prize in 1931 at the artist's home Lallukka architectural competition and received the task of building design. He included the points of Fazer's business to the palace, but the building was the palace muotokieleltään business already much more modern. It is considered to be one of our character as a work of functionalist architecture.
