  • At 16 km from Jyväskylä, on a small island, is the village of Säynätsalo, where Alvar Aalto in 1949-1952 biennium. built Town Hall. This is one of the most significant projects of the world-famous Finnish architect. Currently, local authorities are not there, the building is open for inspection: on weekdays for a symbolic fee 5 euros, and at the weekend-admission is free. The building is of red brick with some points resembles a medieval Swedish castle-with blind walls, no Windows. But for me the approximation to the municipality, crawling built on all sides see and steklânuû Gallery, and a patio with a fountain, and earthen 9,800 stairs, Aalto created from surplus soil during construction. The building consists of several parts; We visited in small conference rooms on the first floor and 1 in the large conference room of the Municipal Board at 2-pm Room your local library is also a member of the municipal complex; occupies 2 floors with plenty of natural light. We have not been able to visit her, because in the output library is closed. Aalto personally followed the progress of the project, developed the design of interiors, furniture, blinds on Windows, even doorknobs and ballot vote during meetings of the village Council-all of this is presented in the exhibition. 1 building-ground floor there is a café and a small stand with postcards and books devoted to the most famous Finnish architect. And amazing harmony of the ascetic architecture with Northern nature!

  • A great building whose design has stood the test of time. I learned they even have two guest rooms available for overnight stays. This is truly an architect's pilgrimage destination.

  • My childhood library and a reason for me to become an architect.
