Of the indisputably great figures in 20th-century architecture, Alvar Aalto is in many ways the most humane, the least rigid, the most relevant to our contemporary sensibility and the emerging future. This fresh, penetrating examination of Aalto's work and influence includes essays by five notable critics and historians. Some 50 of Aalto's projects -- houses, town halls, cultural institutions, factories, furniture and glass designs, and regional plans -- from all periods of his extraordinarily productive career are illustrated and described, using much previously unpublished and newly photographic material.
