Alvar Aalto Design Seminar

Alvar Aalto Design Seminar 2016

The Alvar Aalto international Design Seminars were founded as a discussion forum to continue the spirit of the functional and ecological design principles represented by Alvar Aalto. The first Design for Architecture Seminar was held in 1995.

So far, the Design Seminar has been held seven times and its themes have included the influence of objects and details designed for a building on enhancing the quality of that building, empty space and its importance to designers in their own work, the relationship between surface and content, and the choices made by designers. The language of the seminars is English. Usually at least one exhibition is arranged in conjunction with the Design Seminar.
