Architecture by Alvar Aalto 14: Church of the three crosses, Imatra


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.

Without any doubt Aalto’s most original church design, Vuoksenniska Church – in conformity with his fundamental approach to architecture as a synthesis of varied practical and aesthetic needs – fuses a broad range of motifs into a unique, coherent work of artistic perfection. The division of the interior into three units gave Aalto the occasion to raise the number three into a more widely applicable, theologically justified motif.
