    Alvar Aalto

    Alvar Aalto's furniture designs are a superb example of an uncompromising spirit that has managed to overcome the boundaries of style and taste, fashion and social class. The nearly 300 illustrations in this book, many in full color, document the range of Aalto's accomplishments from his first known work to the latest bentwood variations by Artek Studio, and include the architect's own working sketches.

    Alvar Aalto and Göran Schildt

    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.
