  • Aalto tells the story of Alvar and Aino Aalto, Finnish masters of modern architecture and design. This enchanting couple shared their lives and great passion for organic human-scale architecture. Together they were creating a better and more democratic modern world. In their philosophy, the ͞little human͟ was always at the center of the work. Alongside the personal story, the film paints a bigger picture of modernism through the critical thinking and revolutionary ideas the Aaltos brought into architecture since the 1930s. The film takes the viewer on a cinematic journey to iconic buildings and designs all over the world created by them. The film provokes a dialogue between the Aaltos ́ intentions and contemporary voices of the people who interpret the meaning and legacy of their work.

    Director’ Statement: There are two layers in the film: “the personal” tells about the intimate life and tension between Alvar and Aino, two pioneering colleagues creating something exceptional together. “The professional” we approach through the archive material (letters, drawings, and interviews) and interviews with contemporary people: foreign architects and researchers who analyze Aalto’s buildings and design, while we travel around the world to study their legacy.
