University of Technology, Otaniemi 1949–74
This extensive publication documents Alvar Aalto’s work on the design of the Helsinki University of Technology campus, which began when he won the first prize in an architectural competition in 1949. The totality that Aalto created can still be experienced today, despite various infills in the area designed by other architects. Besides numerous photographs and schematics, this excellent survey includes articles by Aalto experts on the historical background of the university and its architecture, and on the mid-20th-century university campus. The Works section presents a selection of buildings and unrealized projects by the Aalto office between 1947 and 1974.
