Säynätsalo Town Hall – Säynätsalo, Finland

Posted in Built by Yanni Zhao on November 26, 2018


Building: Säynätsalo Town Hall
Location: Säynätsalo, Finland
Architect: Alvar Aalto
Construction: 1952

AE Interests: The town hall is a study in opposition: elements of classicism and the monumental blended with modernity and intimacy to form a cohesive new center-point for the community. Spider-like wooden trusses. Hollow wooden steps filled with dirt and grass. Built entirely of brick, including the loadbearing internal walls.
