The Alvar Aalto Academy invites researchers and practitioners to come to a research seminar and explore the question: Why Aalto? The question provokes us to ponder, from variety of perspectives, what Aalto means for today’s architecture: What are the special needs for the preservation or renewal of urban areas designed by Aalto? How are they to be adapted to the challenges of reuse, accessibility and new technical installations? Are there new concepts to add to Aalto’s values and theoretical thinking? What can be learned from specific areas of Aalto’s designs within the context of today, such as their relationship to sustainability and nature or to the understanding of history and local traditions?
