functionalist/expressionist and humane style, successfully applied to libraries,

Unique civic centers, churches, housing, etc generated a style of functionalism which avoided romantic excess and neoclassical monotony. Alvar Aalto


ALVARALTO Redefined the generic examples of modern architecture that existed in most of Europe and recreated them into a New Finnish architecture. Aalto's designs were particularly significant because of their Response to site, material and form. The spectrum of Aalto's work exhibits a sensual detailing that separates him from most of his contemporaries. Aalto was a master of form and planning, as well as of details that relate a building successfully to its users. His buildings have provided renewed inspiration in the face of widespread disillusionment with


high modernism on one hand, and post modernism on the other other.
