The Aalto House is a seminal project in Alvar Aalto’s development, from the ideals of orthodox functionalism towards the complex, tactile, iclusive and emotive architecture of his mature age. The design development of the house reveals Aalto’s rejection of simplistic rationality and the emergence of his personal architectural pleasure.
