962. Jyväskylä, Tyovaentalo

Dear Louise,

This is an old postcard that shows the Jyväskylä 
Workers' Club, the first important commission built 
by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto in 1925. The year 
before designing this building Aalto traveled 
throughout Europe and spent some time in Italy.
A strong influence from classic Italian architecture is easily recognizable in the main facade of this charming building.

Happy Holidays.
