The exhibition gives centre stage to the winners of the international architecture prize bearing Alvar Aalto’s name, and presents the medallists from 1967 up to today.
The works of the medallists represent a comprehensive cross-section of the developments and stylistic trends in architecture over the past half century. The award has been given to accomplished architects which have followed uncompromising careers, but also to some who have recently gained prominence on the international scene and have carried forward Aalto’s legacy of sustainable, humane design. Over the past 50 years, the Alvar Aalto Medal has been awarded to virtuoso architects from ten countries.
The jubilee exhibition is being produced in collaboration between the Alvar Aalto Foundation and the Museum of Finnish Architecture.
