Description

Alvar Aalto Houses - Paperback

During the course of a career spanning more than fifty years, Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto (1898–1976) designed nearly one hundred single family houses. Aalto, also known for his furniture and glassware, worked in a distinctive style that blended modernism and traditional vernacular architecture. Now available in paperback, Alvar Aalto Houses presents twenty-six of Aalto’s innovative residences— from small summer homes and postwar standardized housing to large housing complexes for industrial commissions—built between the 1920s and the 1960s. • Alvar Aalto is universally acknowledged as one of the most important figures of twentieth century architecture • Beautifully illustrated with newly commissioned photographs as well as Aalto’s archival drawings • Includes houses built for some of the most famous personalities of the time, including art collectors, composers, and writers • Intimate and personalized homes show the warmer, more inviting side of the modern dwelling • Aalto’s use of natural materials and sensitivity to site prefigures environmental concerns of today
