From the dust jacket flap:
"The Nordic landscape, environment and mythology provide the context for this book as it presents the Finnish architect as an early exemplar of the Modern re-engagement of a regionalist ethos. Aalto's ideas on sustainability, material and sensuality feel surprisingly contemporary with today and his work is highlighted as a humanising counterpoint to the coldness of Modernism. Clear, concise and compact, Aalto explores all his major works, from the Town Hall at Säynätsalo and Finlandia Hall in Helsinki, to the Villa Mairea in Noormarkku, Finland, and Baker House for MIT, while also considering their environmental, cultural and social contexts.

An engaging and comprehensive text by Robert McCarter examines Aalto's design conceptions, materials and methods of construction. Aalto employed light, climate and topography to extend the Finnish forest tradition and engage newly emerging modern materials, and McCarter explores these techniques as well as the daily life and experience of his architecture - something that was of paramount importance to Aalto.

Featuring over 250 Images, including archive and contemporary photography, original drawings and cultural influences, Aalto presents a comprehensive and enjoyable introduction to one of world-architecture's most important figures."
