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.
