“The Alvar Aalto Foundation and Artek have been an important part of my life, both professionally and intellectually. Chairing the Board of the Alvar Aalto Foundation is an honour and a privilege in itself,” says Mirkku Kullberg, New Chair of the Alvar Aalto Foundation Board.

“The Foundation is living through an interesting period, with Alvar Aalto’s heritage now exceptionally relevant to the times we live in. Aalto’s ideas about the impact of architecture and design on human wellbeing and the environment still apply today. Carrying this important message forward means the Alvar Aalto Foundation can initiate discussions and play an active role in society. The Foundation’s Board and executive management are highly motivated professionals. It is marvellous to be working with them,” Kullberg adds.

The Alvar Aalto Foundation maintains the material and intellectual legacy of the world-famous architect and designer Alvar Aalto, and acts to make his work and thinking more widely known.
