One of the masters of modern architecture, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was a prolific and influential architect, a gifted painter, and a talented, world-renowned designer. In this comprehensive catalogue all his known works from the early 1920s to his final designs in the 1970s are presented and described. With the full cooperation of the Alvar Aalto Foundation, Goran Schildt has explored its archives, and some 20,000 letters, memoranda and contemporary newspaper cuttings as well as many building models, to ensure that every work is included in this volume. It contains full descriptions, accompanied by abundant illustrations, of all of Aalto's realized and unrealized architectural projects: regional and urban plans, churches, theaters, libraries, museums, office and factory buildings, public housing, and private residences. Aalto's design skill is prominently featured in his furniture, light fixtures, glass, objets d'art, textiles, jewelry, graphic design, and stage sets. The present volume catalogues Aalto's vast oeuvre, including many projects never before seen by the public, and uncovers information about Aalto's competition entries, his clients and colleagues, that is crucial to a complete understanding of Aalto's visionary impact on modern architecture, art, and design.
