TALK · Christoffer Harlang on Alvar Aalto

16 May @ 17:00 - 18:00


Talk with Christoffer Harlang about Alvar Aalto

Meet architect and Alvar Aalto expert Christoffer Harlang in the photographic exhibition IN THE ARCHITECT’S HOUSE – ELINA BROTHERUS ON ALVAR AALTO.

We meet Harlang in the middle of the exhibition among Elisa Brotherus’ works, which is centered around four Aalto buildings: Aalto’s home in Helsinki, his summer house also known as the ‘Experimental House’, the modernist masterpiece Paimio Sanatoriet and Maison Louis Carré in France.

This evening, Harlang will unfold his vast knowledge of Aalto in dialogue with Elina Brotherus’ works. Harlang brings Aalto to life as a pioneer in Nordic design language and aesthetics, but also as the great cultural figure who shows what humanistic architecture can look like. Harlang crosses his in-depth knowledge of Aalto’s architecture with colorful anecdotes from Aalto’s life and contemporaries.

We end the conversation with a glass of wine in the KØS Café.

Free when entrance to the museum is paid. Entrance is paid on arrival at the museum, but you can reserve a place for free via billetto.
