Alvar Aalto: Through the Eyes of Shigeru Ban edited by Juhani Pallasmaa and Tomoko Sato published by Black Dog Publishing 1st ed. 2007.
Finnish architect and designer, Alvar Aalto, is universally acknowledged as one of the most important figures of twentieth century architecture. His career overlapped chronologically, and for a while ideologically with those of Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe, but his commitment to a humanitarian ideal inspired by nature, set him apart from his purist Modernist contemporaries and lent his work a very distinct, personal touch. Renowned Japanese architect, Shigeru Ban, is one of the leaders in his field carrying on Aalto's legacy today. In this publication, Ban looks back to the Finnish master for inspiration, and has chosen 15 key projects that chart Aalto's philosophical and conceptual development throughout his prolific career.
Fully illustrated in color and bland white with multiple essays and interviews. Cover shows minor scuffs and bumps with cloth spine. Shes pretty pricey elsewhere.
