Network of Alvar Aalto Cities

The Network of Alvar Aalto Cities was launched in Jyväskylä on February 3, 2017. The network’s members are Alajärvi, Espoo, Eura, Helsinki, Jyväskylä, Järvenpää, Kotka, Kouvola, Paimio, Pori, Rovaniemi, Seinäjoki, Varkaus and Turku.

The Alvar Aalto Cities form a network of active partners that are all of equal standing regardless of the size of the locality or the number of Aalto sites there. The freeform network is being further expanded by inviting towns, cities and municipalities where there is Alvar Aalto architecture of sufficient significance to become members. The network’s activities are coordinated by the Alvar Aalto Foundation.

 

The network’s goal is to increase Aalto awareness both in Finland and abroad. Joining forces on communications and marketing will, for instance, improve the visibility and accessibility of exhibitions, tourist attractions and events. This will primarily provide a service for tourists with a special interest in the built environment, architecture and Alvar Aalto’s production.

In the future, the network will be expanded to take in municipalities abroad with major Alvar Aalto-designed buildings. The aim is for the network to grow gradually into an international body that spans all the Alvar Aalto Cities. In total there are about forty Alvar Aalto Cities around the world.
