Summary and Info
This three-volume set chronicles the complete works of the Finnish master Alvar Aalto. Aalto's designs encompassed the fields of painting, architecture, sculpture, and furniture, and are some of the most beautiful and original of modern times. His combination of an interest in natural, organic shapes with the modernist mandates of form and light in its purest aspects makes him one of the acknowledged masters of modern architecture, along with Le Corbusier and Frank Lloyd Wright. Ada Louise Huxtable writes of Aalto, "his deceptively simple style is a sophisticated synthesis, a reconciliation of the monumental and the popular, of the general and the particular, of the real and the mythic, of nature and art." This book is one of cornerstones of any serious architectural library.
