From the Publisher. 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. This beautifully illustrated volume of newly commissioned photographs and archival drawings includes houses built for some of the most famous personalities of the time, including art collectors, composers, and writers.
