Making scale models has always been a fundamental part of the architect’s work. Architects have used models for giving concrete form to their designs and for displaying them.
Over the years, the ‘model boys’ in Alvar Aalto’s architect’s office created numerous cardboard working models, plywood prototype models and magnificent competition models.
Some of the models are now returning to their birthplace for the Scale Models in Studio Aalto summer exhibition. On display are about twenty remarkable scale models, among them models for the Aalto Theatre in Essen and a model of Maison Louis Carré made in retrospect.
