Alvar Aalto PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Alvar Aalto free pdf Showcasing the famed architect's creative accomplishments, this chronicle travels through a series of conversations with the members of Alvar Aalto's workshop that span a period of 50 years from 1944 to 1994. More than 60 projects are covered, discussing the full range of Aalto's craft and journeying far beyond the limited canon of buildings usually discussed in critiques of his work. Placing these projects in their own time and among the people and milieu that cultivated them, the study illustrates these structures not just as artifacts but as part of a dynamic and often contentious environment, demonstrating how the workshop itself formed an integral part of Aalto's achievements."
