This book engages the architecture of Aalto through an integrated examination of his major works, how they engage the light, climate and topography of their sites, exemplifying the way in which he extended Finnish tradition and engaged newly emerging Modern materials. It describes the actual inhabitation of Aalto's architecture and the way in which daily life and of contemporary culture are integrated in the experience of interior space - something that was of paramount importance to Aalto.

This is a fantastic and leading title for Aalto and architecture enthusiasts as well as the uninitiated who are keen to learn more.
