Nicknamed the “Mage du Nord” by architecture critic Sigfried Giedion, Alvar Aalto is the most famous Finnish architect of his generation and one of the major representatives of modernism with a human face.

The Cité presents a large retrospective of the Vitra Design Museum and the Alvar Aalto Museum, Finland. It brings together an exceptional selection of its main architectural achievements and its iconic design pieces. Thirty years after the last major French retrospective, this exhibition is organised in partnership with the Alvar Aalto Foundation traces, through nearly 150 works (models, drawings, historical and contemporary photographs) largely presented for the first time in France, the milestones fifty years of activity of the architect since the first Finnish projects of the 1920s until the international development of the agency. While the sanatorium of Paimio (1929-1933), the villa Mairea (1938-1939) and the Finnish pavilion of the New York World’s Fair (1939) put it in the forefront of the modern architectural scene, Alvar Aalto pursues a profoundly original way reconciling functionalist principles and humanistic aspirations. Through examples of furniture, lighting and historic glasswork his research restores a thought and a work that places the man and his perceptions at the heart of the process of creation.
