Many of them are architectural gems, where his thoughts about dwelling and architecture come together. Aalto considered experimental building to be very important: in his opinion, there should always be an opportunity for experimentation in every project, for it is only in that way that architecture can be promoted and quality improved for the good of the 'little man'. It was specifically in the designing of single-family houses that Aalto could realize new ideas. Aalto's single-family houses can be divided into three groups: houses for individuals, the client of which was nearly always a relative or friend; houses designed for industrial institutions or other communities; and type- or standard houses. All the houses presented in Alvar Aalto Houses were originally designed for private clients. The book presents eight single-family houses by Aalto from 1920s to the end of the 1960s, built in Finland, Estonia and France.

These fascinating texts illustrate important aspects of Aalto's outlook and career. They begin with a charming piece, dictated by Aalto near the end of his life, about growing up beneath his father's two-tiered white table where the surveyor's apprentices worked - and his gradual ascent to the top tier. From Aalto's early writings (which he signed with the pseudonym 'Ping') there is a satirical sketch about Christmas festivities at Benvenuto Cellini's place, attended by an unlikely mix of characters including Eliel Saarinen, Andre Le Notre, and Katshusika Hokusai. Aalto's often-idealistic reform projects - his Renaissance revival, his rationalistic utopia - his writings as a propagandist during the war years; his comments on his own crucial travels to Italy, the 1939 New York World's Fair, and the "decadence of public buildings"; critiques of building and furniture design - all reveal the progression of ideas and convictions that grew and changed throughout Aalto's life, both reflecting and influencing the course of architecture in the twentieth century. Other influences are also revealed in Aalto's contact with the Bauhaus in Germany, De Stijl in the Netherlands, Le Corbusier in France, and such important friends as Sven Markelius, Gunnar Asplund, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Siegried Giedion, Lewis Mumford, Walter Gropius, and Frank Lloyd Wright, some of whom Aalto eulogizes in the chapter 'In Memoriam'+-+25357329352754ocn700735666book20110.73Aalto and AmericaHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcOverview: The internationally renowned Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) created several landmarks of modern design in the United States. The first, the Finland Pavilion at the New York World's Fair in 1939, introduced his pioneering style to the country and established his reputation among his American peers. Subsequent designs produced in the United States marked major turning points in his evolving position as an architect. His commissioned project for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Baker House dormitory (completed 1949) features an undulating facade of red brick, a material that references the building's Boston surroundings. Aalto's fan-shaped plan for the Mount Angel Abbey Library (completed 1970) in St. Benedict, Oregon, his consummate exploration of the library type, capitalizes on the local terrain and the use of natural light. Aalto's designs had a lasting impact on American modernism, but his experiences in America also profoundly influenced his own stylistic development. Aalto and America is a detailed survey of this beneficial relationship, with contributions by fifteen international experts who explore these key designs in relation to larger themes in international politics, architectural culture, housing research, and modern criticism and design+-+25512655852546ocn038325461book19980.56Schildt, GöranAlvar Aalto : master worksCriticism, interpretation, etcPublished to coincide with the centennial of Aalto's birth and a major retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, this book is a showcase for this modern master's oeuvre, featuring projects from Scandinavia, Europe and America+-+36865843252426ocn086077828book20070.76Aalto, AlvarAlvar Aalto : through the eyes of Shigeru BanCriticism, interpretation, etcExhibition catalogsAlvar Aaltos arkitektur og design set gennem et udvalg foretaget af den japanske arkitekt Shigeru Ban+-+69172295461903ocn032035721book19940.84Spens, MichaelViipuri Library, 1927-1935 : Alvar Aalto1775ocn057559955book20040.35Lahti, LounaAlvar Aalto, 1898-1976 : paradise for the man in the streetHistoryCriticism, interpretation, etcBiographyOne of the most important architects of the 20th century, Alvar Aalto is responsible for creating the minimalist, Scandinavian-style which dominates much of contemporary design.

Through the innovations in form and line that were born in his furniture designs, Aalto's name has also become important in the history of design. His contribution to furniture design was among his foremost achievements in its own right, and it sowed the seed from which many of his architectural ideas sprang forth. This book is the first comprehensive illustrated book on the designs of Alvar Aalto. Articles written by experts will shed light on many aspects of Aalto's wide-ranging scope as a designer of furniture, glass and light fittings.
