The exhibition highlights sites in Germany designed by Alvar Aalto’s architect’s office from the 1950s to  80s. Aalto’s international reputation brought design work increasingly aimed at Continental Europe. Germany became a focal point for Aalto’s architecture – with major buildings completed in four cities: Berlin, Bremen, Essen and Wolfsburg.

The exhibition brings together more than 70 original architectural drawings for a total of fourteen built and unbuilt construction projects. The drawings allow us to trace the stages of the creative design process, from early tentative sketches to carefully elaborated, detailed working drawings. The exhibition is at the Museum for Architectural Drawing in Berlin 23.9–14.1.2024 and has been produced in collaboration between the Tchoban Foundation, the Finnish Institute in Germany, the University of Cambridge, and the Alvar Aalto Foundation.

Drawing: Aalto-Theater in Essen @ Alvar Aalto -säätiö.
