597. Exhibition and Trade Fair, Turku


Dear Craig,

In 1929 Aalto and Bryggman designed
the Turku Fair, an exhibition linked to the
700-year jubilee of the City. The
architecture of this fair was the first to
use the functionalist language in
Scandinavia and has been often compared
with the much larger 1930 Stockholm
Exhibition. In both events advertisements
in architecture played a significant role.

Regards.
R
