Architecture Alvar Aalto 13: Finlandia Hall


The booklets in this series present buildings designed by Alvar Aalto, with introductory texts based either on Alvar Aalto’s own writings or on articles written by architectural experts. The contents are enlivened by photographs and architectural drawings of the buildings then and now. The series has been published since 1976.

In 1962 the Helsinki city authorities commissioned Aalto to design a concert and congress building. The Finlandia Hall was inaugurated in December 1971. The congress wing, linked to the south end of the main building, contains a large foyer in addition to conference rooms and halls of various sizes. The west facade of the wing has large windows and rounded, concave hollows to make space for some of the old trees growing on the site.
