For what I could see in this building, it looked like an experimental cultural space, where he played with several materials and developed different meeting areas in a messy way but absolutely controlled.
The outside amazed me. The bricks had to be done specifically to this project as far as they had special shape for having this round cladding that nowadays we still enjoy.
As usual, Aalto used brick, steel and copper for the exterior. Creating dynamic volumes and fluid public spaces.
This might be interesting for some architecture students. I should say I always try to get this kind of information but is not so easy and takes quite long to do all these posts...so if anybody is interested in something particular don't doubt in contacting me and I'll gladly help you in your research. As I always say, the aim of this blog is to share information to make our experiences more comfortable, suitable and profitable.
