AALTO – Work and Life

Aalto2, Jyväskylä

  • 27.5.2023–

The opening of the Alvar Aalto Museum’s new permanent exhibition gives the public an opportunity to explore Alvar Aalto’ life’s work.


The exhibition takes us beneath the surface into the architect’s working and design process, whether it be an individual building, a city centre, a piece of furniture, or a district plan.

The connecting thread running through the exhibition is Aalto’s optimistic idea that architecture and good design are capable of solving the challenges – or “problems” as Aalto called them – of human existence and society. The importance of Alvar and Aino Aalto in the history of Finnish design is revealed alongside their role in architecture.

The layout of the exhibition relies on the power of the original and authentic – architect’s drawings, scale models, and design objects. The exhibition design is by the architect Asmo Jaaksi (JKKM Architects) and the graphic design is by Tiina Ekosaari.
