[1,2,3,4,5,6]

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.
