    This tribute to the iconic Finnish architect Alvar Aalto, presented in a 1998 extra edition of the publication “Architecture and Urbanism,” marks the centenary of Aalto’s birth. Renowned for his humane approach to modernism and deep connection with nature, Aalto’s architectural philosophy is captured through a thoughtful selection of his residential designs. The compilation presents fifteen of Aalto’s houses in chronological order, offering insights into the evolution of his work and his steadfast design principles.


    The volume is adorned with photographs by Jari Jetsonen, which capture the essence of Aalto’s designs in their harmonious natural settings. The text includes an essay from the Alvar Aalto Foundation, and is further enriched by a dedicated piece by Markku Lahti, the Director of the Alvar Aalto Museum.
