Publisher's description: Alvar Aalto is a Finnish architect who participated in more than 500 building projects during his lifetime, networked with the most significant influential figures of his time, and spoke as well as wrote about architecture. Alvar Aalto: What & When? is a reference book on both Aalto's implemented and unimplemented designs, compiled in chronological order according to year and alphabetical order according to locality. Each year starts with an introduction that describes Aalto's trips, the people he, met and significant events in his work and private life. The texts are enlivened by quotes from Aalto's writings and speeches as well as colorful writings by his contemporaries, which bring the human side of the architect Aalto closer to the reader. An abundance of versatile illustrations--approximately 70 drawings and photographs over a time span of 70 years--complements the detailed information package. In addition to the chronological material, the book also includes Aalto's complete curriculum vitae; his membership of both Finnish and international societies; his titles, awards, and competition prizes; as well as a list of his competition pseudonyms. It is an indispensable reference source for researchers and everyone interested in Aalto's architecture.
