CFF Presentation on Alvar Aalto

19 Mar

Cana­di­an Friends of Fin­land

Wel­comes you to A Pre­sen­ta­tion on Alvar Aal­to

Join Bob and Ron Poutt and Bar­ry Lam­bert for a pre­sen­ta­tion illus­trat­ed with numer­ous slides about the great­est Finnish archi­tect of his day and one of the most impor­tant 20th cen­tu­ry archi­tects any­where, Alvar Aal­to. His career spanned the first 60 years of Finland’s inde­pen­dence, and his icon­ic fur­ni­ture and Aal­to vase are all still pro­duced.

While he designed impres­sive and impor­tant build­ings, he also improved the lives of large num­bers of ordi­nary Finns through his involve­ment in
recon­struc­tion and design of mod­est hous­ing after the Win­ter and Con­tin­u­a­tion Wars.

If you enjoyed last year’s pre­sen­ta­tion on Akseli Gallen-Kallela you will be sure to enjoy hear­ing about Alvar Aal­to.

The Runeberg Cho­rus will also enter­tain us.

Admis­sion by dona­tion. Refresh­ments
