Aalto Bravo

The architect Alvar Aalto in Jyväskylä – a prophet in his own land! This claim is realized on the guided Aalto Bravo bus tour, which provides an acquaintance with Aalto’s production over a period of almost sixty years. There are examples of the classicism embraced in his youth right through to the powerful, mature design language of his latter years. We also treated to stories about the phases of Aalto’s life and the nature of the man himself – not forgetting his talented wives, Aino and Elissa. We see places where he has lived, lines that he has drawn and marks that he has left on the Jyväskylä cityscape. We pay a visit to Säynätsalo, ”the Tahiti of Lake Päijänne” as well as Muurame Church, which was re-opened a short time ago refurbished in 1920s style. The tour ends at the Aalto2 Museum, the authentic environment of which also presents a fine opportunity to enjoy Aalto coffee and cake.
