Alvar Aalto: Technology and Nature

Filmed in his native Finland, Italy, Germany, and the U.S., this program looks at the life and work of Alvar Aalto and examines his creative style in the context of his time, the traditions he inherited, and the country and climate in which he lived. For Aalto, the Finnish landscape was much more than the background to which he successfully molded his own creations; he had an almost mystical affinity with it which was central to his whole achievement. Throughout his long career, Aalto’s work embraced almost all the key public institutions as well as public and private housing. In the 1930s and 40s, almost single-handedly, Aalto made his country a place of pilgrimage for all who sought enlightenment as to the aesthetic possibility of the new architecture. (60 minutes)
