An outstanding example of the golden age of Modernism and a high watermark in Aalto's oeuvre, the Villa Mairea was the result of a creative interchange between the architect and the owner. Here, through large format, full-page colour, and black and white photographs, the viewer is given the opportunity to wander through both the interior and exterior of this masterpiece while enjoying the surroundings. Including plans and elevations, the survey is introduced by a short essay from the son of the original owner.
