1074. Villa Mairea, Sauna

















Dear Marie,

The materials and the scale used by Aalto in this famous
house make me think about many features typically seen
in vernacular Japanese architecture. A long time ago I read
that when Aalto was designing Villa Mairea he used to
wear a kimono that he received as a gift from a Japanese
ambassador.

Regards,
R
