Alvar Aalto Houses

Regular price £30.00

This book presents eight single-family houses designed by Aalto from the 1920s to the end of the 1960s, built in Finland, Estonia and France.

Markku Lahti, director of the Alvar Aalto Foundation, tells about the history of the selected houses, whom they were built for, and how Aalto adapted his own design ideals to the needs of his clients. Among the clients were some famous cultural personalities of the time: art collectors, composers and writers.

Jari Jetsonen’s full-colour pictures and Aalto’s original drawings beautifully convey the special features of each house which are complimented by two essays: Markku Lahti’s multi-angled review of Aalto’s residential architecture, and architect and researcher Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen’s fascinating description of Aalto’s rich world of architectural details. The foreword has been written by Hiroshi Naito, architect and professor at the Tokyo University.
