As well as being the creator of our most-wanted vase and iconic bent-ply pieces, Alvar Aalto was also one of the 20th century’s most important architects. In a career spanning more than 50 years, he designed nearly 100 houses in a style that cleverly blended modernist principles with traditional Finnish architecture.

Alvar Aalto Houses presents 26 of these innovative homes built between the Twenties and the Sixties, with beautiful newly commissioned photographs, original archive drawings and a fascinating essay entitled , Alvar Aalto’s Concept of Dwelling. We love.
