881. Turun Teatteri. Suomi

Dear Raija,

The mixed-use Southwestern Finland Agricultural 
Cooperative Building designed by Alvar Aalto in 
1928 included a hotel, a restaurant, a banking center,
several shops, many flats and the 500 seat Turku City 
Theater. Shown in this vintage picture of this vanished
theater is one of the entrances to the symmetrical 
auditorium. These entrances were passages below a 
tier of the auditorium seats, very much like the 
vomitoria in the ancient roman amphitheaters.

Good wishes.
