The latest addition to the authoritative monograph series documenting
each of Alvar Aalto's architectural projects focuses on the house Aalto
and his second wife Elissa designed for the Parisian art dealer Louis
Carré in the mid-1950s. This profusely illustrated volume describes the
architecture of the building, the exceptional interiors and life in the
house. It also includes a biographical sketch of Carré, who met Aalto at
the opening of the pavilion Aalto had designed for the 1956 Venice
Biennale. The friendship between Aalto, the radical experimenter, and
Carré, the perfectionist patron of the arts, lasted the rest of their lives,
and Maison LC became one of the most exceptional collaborations
between architect and client ever built.
