Alvar Aalto Houses by Jari Jetsonen,Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen Pdf

During the course of a career spanning more than fifty years, Finnish architect and designer Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) designed nearly one hundred single-family houses. Aalto, also known for his furniture and glassware, worked in a distinctive style that blended modernism and traditional vernacular architecture. Now available in paperback, Alvar Aalto Houses presents twenty-six of Aalto's innovative residences-from small summer homes and postwar standardized housing to large housing complexes for industrial commissions-built between the 1920s and the 1960s.

Alvar Aalto by Jochen Eisenbrand,Mateo Kries Pdf

Der Architekt und Designer Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) war einer der wichtigsten Vertreter organischer Gestaltung im 20. Jahrhundert. Seine Architektur fasziniert bis heute durch natürliche Materialien und skulpturale, geschwungene Formen. Für das Sanatorium in Paimio entwarf Aalto 1932 den ersten Freischwinger aus Holz, seine Savoy Vase (1936) gilt heute als das Symbol finnischen Designs schlechthin. Die Ausstellung gibt einen umfassenden Einblick in das Werk Aaltos, präsentiert seine wichtigsten Bauten, Möbeln und Leuchten und geht den Inspirationen nach, die sein Werk prägten. Schlüsselthemen sind Aaltos Dialog mit wichtigen Künstlern wie Hans Arp, Alexander Calder oder Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, seine intensiven internationalen Verbindungen, seine Auseinandersetzung mit Fragen des rationalen Bauens, aber auch seine Suche nach einer Gestaltung, die stets den Menschen in den Mittelpunkt stellt. 0Exhibition: Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany (27.09.2014-03.01.2015).

Alvar Aalto, Architect by John Stewart Pdf

This new biography of Aalto is the first to comprehensively cover his life, from the backwoods of Ostrabothnia to international fame and all of his buildings, from the early alterations and extensions to shops and houses in Jyvaskyla to Finlandia Hall. It draws on Aalto's archive, recollections of former employees and contemporaneous publications to fully explore Alvar Aalto the architect, rather than simply Alvar Aalto's architecture.

a+u March issue features Alvar Aalto's houses. 12 works from the 1920s to 1970s are presented with photographs taken by photographer Jari Jetsonen, and texts by architectural historian Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen. In this issue, we approach Aalto's design from the perspective of "materials and details" of each house. Jari Jetsonen's photographs, which capture human lives, reveal the quality of the space and through them we trace the processes of design. In each project, Sirkkaliisa Jetsonen describes its background at the time of construction, such as social situations or design processes, to Aalto's choices of materials and details as a result. The original drawings are provided by the Alvar Aalto Foundation. In addition to the general drawings, a number of detail drawings such as sections of staircases or fireplaces are included in large scales along with photographs.

Alvar Aalto by Patricia de Muga,Sandra Dachs,Laura García Hintze Pdf

Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) is the most prestigious Finnish architect of the last century, and the father of Nordic Modernism. He once said, God created paper for the purpose of drawing architecture on it. Everything else is at least for me an abuse of paper. In the U.S. Aalto's critical reception began with his design for the Finnish Pavilion at the 1939 World Fair in New York: Frank Lloyd Wright described it as a work of genius. After World War II, Aalto also designed MIT's student dormitory. Prior to this, the architect's Paimio Sanatorium (1929) and Viipuri Library (1935), both in Finland, had already attracted international praise. He was also an outstanding town planner, painter and sculptor. Aalto's Modernism entailed the use of natural materials, warm colors, and undulating lines, and he is considered an important early exponent of Organic Design as a result. Of his design work outside of architecture, Aalto's vases, lamps, glassware and laminated bent-plywood furniture (pioneered and produced through the design company he co-founded, Artek) are equally esteemed. Iconic pieces include the Savoy Vase, the Paimio Chair and the Beehive Lamp. This monograph on Aalto's highly collectible furniture designs expands our understanding of the diverse abilities of this influential architect/designer.
