Alvar Aalto is one of the greatest names in modern architecture and design. Aalto’s work with wood, was influenced by early Scandinavian architects, however, his experiments and departure from the norm brought attention to his ability to make wood do things not previously done. His techniques in the way he cut the beech tree, for example, and also his ability to use plywood as structural and aesthetic, were ground breaking.
