The appeal for the preservation of Paimio Sanatorium, a masterpiece of functionalist architecture designed by Alvar Aalto, was signed by more than 2500 enthusiasts all over the world. The Alvar Aalto Foundation’s Managing Director Tommi Lindh submitted the petition to the owner of Paimio Sanatorium (the Hospital District of Southwest Finland) on the site on February 1, 2019.

The Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and Ministry of Environment have now launched a joint inquiry into the future of Paimio Sanatorium. The inquiry will be headed by Heikki Alanen, Master of Laws trained on the bench, and Olavi Hiekka, Master of Science (Tech.). Their task will be to draw up a proposal for an economically viable model for the future use of the building. The proposal should address forms of ownership and use of the property that will ensure its maintenance and protect its cultural-heritage value. The sale of the building has been suspended pending the result of the inquiry. The deadline for the inquiry report is June 15, 2019.

The Alvar Aalto Foundation wishes to thank everybody for the kind support they have given by signing the Paimio Sanatorium appeal.
