On New Year’s Eve 31.12.2016, the Alvar Aalto Museum-produced “
PAIMIO SANATORIUM – Keeping It Modern” touring exhibition will open on the exhibition balcony in Paimio City Hall. The exhibition reflects the contents of a conservation management plan, the first of its kind drawn up in Finland, involving the most detailed investigation so far of this hospital built for tuberculosis patients.

The exhibition’s design makes prominent use of photographs, drawings and other materials. It also includes a film of Paimio Sanatorium and unique items of furniture designed by Aino and Alvar Aalto. The Paimio exhibition is a slightly modified version of an original exhibition shown at the Alvar Aalto Museum in Jyväskylä in late winter 2016.

One of Aalto’s best-known works, Paimio Sanatorium was completed in 1933. Along with the adjoining hospital complex, the functionalist sanatorium is one of Finland’s most important built environments.

In 2014, the Getty Foundation in the USA chose Paimio Sanatorium as one of the ten pilot projects in its Keeping It Modern initiative, which aims to develop new methods and renovation standards for caring for works from the modern architectural heritage. The conservation management plan has been implemented with the aid of a grant from the Getty Foundation.

More about the conservation management plan and exhibition here.

On New Year’s Eve the exhibition will be open 14–17. This coincides with the official opening in Paimio City Hall library (Vistantie 18) of Centenary Year 2017 (Finland 100 years & City of Paimio 20 years).

Exhibition opening hours January-February:
Mon 8:00–17:00
Tues, Thurs and Fri 8:00–15:30
N.B.! On Tuesday January 17 and February 7 the exhibition will be open until 19:00.
Wed 10:00–15:30

Entrance to the exhibition is free.
