Alvar Aalto’s House
Finally, I was able to visit Alvar Aalto’s house the other day.
Of course, almost all architectural students in Japan know about him, but there seem to be a few who come to see his works.
Actually when I was a student, I wasn’t really interested in famous architecture. That’s why we only knew about masterworks through publications.
However, when I visited his home, I felt really comfortable and impressed.
He thought about daylighting, the landscape, and the way of using each of the rooms and furniture.
All combinations were perfect.
This is a semi private room.

This is his hobby.
This is his office. He employes some staff from 20 to 10.
This is his study room.
This is his and his family’s dinning.
He is regarded as the father of modern architecture in Finland.
