THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, NEW YORK

Alvar Aalto

Between Humanism and Materialism

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York
Edited by Peter Reed. Essays by Kenneth Frampton, Pekka Korvenmaa, Juhani Pallasmaa and Marc Treib.

Of the indisputably great figures in 20th-century architecture, Alvar Aalto is in many ways the most humane, the least rigid, the most relevant to our contemporary sensibility and the emerging future. This sumptuous book offers a thorough study of an innovative and prolific master, whom Frank Lloyd Wright termed a genius. This fresh, penetrating examination of Aalto's work and influence includes essays by five notable critics and historians. Some 50 of Aalto's projects--houses, town halls, cultural institutions, factories, furniture and glass designs, and regional plans--from all periods of his extraordinarily productive career are illustrated and described, using much previously unpublished and newly photographic material. This book was published to accompany a 1998 retrospective exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
