Alvar Aalto: elämälle herkempi rakenne

Front Cover
Rakennustieto Oy, 1998 - Architecture - 176 pages
To Alvar Aalto life, art, architecture, and creativity were inseparable from everyday work. When developing ideas or researching a design challenge he moved as easily in the world of natural sciences as he did in the world of art. This remarkable book celebrates the 1998 centenary of Alvar Aalto's birth. It is not the most comprehensive book on his work, but it is without question the most sumptuous and poetic. 23 projects from different decades are featured, ranging from private houses to public buildings.The text, written by Marku Lahtti, director of the Alvar Alto Museum, intelligently complements the photographic genius of Maija Holma, whose bold images capture the finest details of Aalto's structures and interiors. Works include Finland Hall, House of Culture, Helsinki University of Technology, Helsinki; Art Museum, Aalborg, Denmark; Villa Mairea, Noormarkku; and Aalto's own house in Helsinki.
