Summary

This nearly complete collection of Aalto's literary sketches and lectures from 1922 to 1968 expresses the architect's views on modernism, traditionalism, and functionalism, the design of housing and furnishings, city and regional planning, and technology and the quality of life. These short pieces are enriched by drawings from Aalto's travels in the Mediterranean countries and North Africa.
