Architecture by Alvar Aalto 9: The Experimental House, Muuratsalo


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 serie has been published since 1976.

”This building complex at Muuratsalo is meant to become a kind of synthesis between a protected architectural studio and an experimental center where one can expect to try experiments that are not ready to be tried elsewhere, and where the proximity to nature can give fresh inspirations both in terms of form and construction. Perhaps it will be possible there to find the specific character of architectural details that our nothern climate requires.” (Alvar Aalto)
