Event description
A love story of Alvar and Aino Aalto, Finnish masters of modern architecture and design, an enchanting journey to their creations.

About this event

AALTO is a documentary film journey into the life and work of one of the greatest modern architects Alvar Aalto. The film shares the love story of Alvar and his architect wife Aino Aalto. It takes the viewer on a cinematic tour to their creative processes and iconic buildings all over the world. We visit their buildings in Finland, a library in Russia, a student dormitory at MIT, an art collector's private house near Paris, a pavilion in Venice – and many other unique places.

The great tragedy for Alvar, however, was to lose Aino in 1949 when she died. Alvar got married again to another architect, Elissa Aalto, and had one of his most significant periods in the 1950´s and kept working until his death 1976.
