Hardback coffee table book featuring the work of architect, Alvar Aalto. By Paul David Pearson, published in 1978.
"Today the Modern Movement in architecture is under attack for its formalistic, functional approach, at the same time that its relevance to human life is being questioned. Yet for decades before this, Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) was independently interpreting modern forms in very sensitive human terms. Although his heritage is being carried on by those he worked with and personally influenced, he left no written legacy of his design philosophy. This timely critical study fills that void by analyzing for the first time Aalto's personal form of expression as the last great leady of 20th-century architecture."
