1346. Helsinki, Finland. Finlandia Hall















Dear Aava,

"Aalto was one of the rare architects in our time who could
make monuments: but much rarer was this other gift which
could make poetry out of the everyday, could in the words of the
painter Vincent Van Gogh, give back to ordinary men that
something of the eternal that the halo used to represent"
(Colin St John Wilson)

Best,
R
