“As for the Finnish landscape, I have always been immersed in it. When I began to appreciate the balance and harmony it exudes, I also began to understand how we humans should treat out natural surroundings.”
Alvar Aalto, 1972

During the summer and autumn, the Museum will be arranging exhibition-related guided tours, theme presentations, and an individual tour at the University of Jyväskylä campus area. Further details of the supplementary programme can be find behind the links below.

The Cultivated Landscape of Alvar Aalto reveals the connection between the architect Alvar Aalto’s architecture and the surrounding landscape and nature. The exhibition presents sites in Finland and abroad, the design themes that emerge from the architecture, and the individual features of each site.

Read more from the exhibition press release.

Individual tour of the surroundings of the Alvar Aalto Museum and Aalto’s Jyväskylä University campus

The tour gives you a chance to get a personal view of an important Aalto design: the University of Jyväskylä campus area. You can go round the area and experience how Aalto positioned the campus in the heart of the Central Finnish landscape, using his characteristic themes to elevate the pine forests and arable landscape of Central Finland to make it one of the world’s most beautiful University settings.

The various sites have been marked on the area using pictograms to illustrate the themes. QR codes linked to each pictogram reveal more about each theme and how it is manifest on the specific site.
