ALVAR AALTO HOUSES
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.
