Item description for Alvar Aalto Complete Work, Vol 3 (1971 - 1976) (Alvar Aalto) by Alvar Aalto...

Der finnische Architekt Alvar Aalto (1898-1976) entwickelte, ausgehend vom Neoklassizismus und Rationalismus, einen unverwechselbaren eigenen Stil, der funktionale und expressive Momente verschmilzt und dabei den Menschen und seine Bedrfnisse immer in den Mittelpunkt stellt. Als 1976 aus Helsinki die bedrckende Nachricht von Aaltos Tod kam, wusste man in Frankreich, dass eine der letzten Persnlichkeiten der groen Architektengeneration des 20. Jahrhunderts dahingegangen war. Aaltos Architekturformen lassen sich in keine historischen Schemas pressen. Seine Formen in Grundriss, in der Funktion, im Schnitt und im Aufriss sind alle so stark von seiner individuellen Persnlichkeit geprgt, dass eine Nachvollziehung seiner darin enthaltenen Gedanken, seiner Zeitkritik und seiner Lebensphilosophie sehr schwer ist. Karl Fleig hat mit Frau Elissa Aalto eine Edition gestaltet, die nicht nur die letzten Werke auffhrt, sondern darber hinaus auch Werk und Person darstellt.
