Villa Mairea documents Alvar Aalto’s renowned private dwelling for timber magnate Harry and Maire Gullischsen. From smartly lashed joints to idiosyncratic door handles, Villa Mairea shows a master architect in full command of his power. Constructed after Wright’s Fallingwater, this project addresses Wright’s influence, as well as Aalto’s reverence for Japanese architecture. This stunning monograph reproduces all phases of the project sketches, extensive historical, and contemporary reproductions, along with an engaging essay about the homeowners and how they came to commission Aalto.
