This latest addition to the Alvar Aalto Foundation's ambitious series of books is
the most impressive yet. Aalto's design for the campus for Jyväskylä College of Education, in the small rural town where the architect grew up, is one of the first competitions the master Modernist won as an emerging power in the early 1950s. The campus, with its late-19th-century buildings, needed to be expanded
and repaired; Aalto's scheme shows his mastery of creating an openness that
allowed abundant light and landscape to become part of the buildings. With a wealth of photos and renderings, including previously unpublished material such as the competition drawings, and unrealized projects by the Aalto office from the same era. Texts by Aalto scholars Päivi Lukkarinen and Mari Forsberg.
