Aalto in Detail: A Catalogue of Components

Céline Dietziker, Lukas Gruntz, Annette Helle

Birkhaüser, 2022


This carefully curated catalog celebrates the rich detail in the work of Aino, Elissa, and Alvar Aalto. Every support, railing, and handle is the result of intensive formal and functional research. The authors document 50 Aalto buildings – some well-known and others less so – and arrange their photographs by component into 20 chapters. The result is a rich photographic record that will serve as a source of inspiration for every architect.

– From door handles to skylights: Aalto’s infinite wealth of components
– Inspiring documentation with 400 systematically arranged photos
– Unconventionally detailed solutions with special attention paid to technical feasibility
