Alvar Aalto (Obras y Proyectos / Works and Projects)
Publisher: Gustavo Gili (August 1, 1993)
Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto, is one of the great architects of the 20th century. Although his early work was influenced by the neoclassic movement, he went on to develop his own individual form of architecture which was functionalist yet expressionist, incorporating humane aspects into his work. This special edition provides a compact overview of his works, complete with plans, illustrations and explanatory texts. It is an ideal introduction to the work of Alvar Aalto and highlights his unique contribution to 20th century architecture.
