Alvar Aalto Quotes (6 Quotes)


    Nothing is as dangerous in architecture as dealing with separated problems. If we split life into separated problems we split the possibilities to make good building art.

    Modern architecture does not mean the use of immature new materials the main thing is to refine materials in a more human direction.

    Our time is so specialised that we have people who know more and more or less and less.

    We have almost a city has probably two or three hundred committees. Every committee is dealing with just one problem and has nothing to do with the other problems.

    We should concentrate our work not only to a separated housing problem but housing involved in our daily work and all the other functions of the city.


    Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together.
