(Kuortane, 1898 – Helsinki 1976)
One of the most important modern European architects who signed, built and characterised each of his works with the unmistakable mark of his ‘wave’ (which in Finnish is actually ‘aalto’), appreciated all over the world. From the design of furniture and glass objects to architecture and painting (he was also the author of master plans for Finland and Sweden!), Aalto overcame the rigidity and stasis of architectural rationalism by sculpting the natural materials he impiagnated with undulating lines and surfaces, seeking and finding a formidable connection between building and environment.
