Dear Nuccio,

"The constructions made by animals are rationalistic.
They are precise and unchanged, the same every day
and every year. (...) If architecture is made completely 
rational, people become animals." (Sverre Fehn)

2047. Jyväskylä Defense Corps Building


 











Querida Cristina,

En esta vieja postal se puede ver a la derecha de la imagen
y pasado los dos edificios más bajos, el Cuartel General
de la Guardia Civil Finesa (Defense Corps). Esta es una 
importante obra temprana de Alvar Aalto que proyectó
con solo 28 años. El edificio responde en su estilo a 
una transición del Clasicismo Nórdico al Funcionalismo
que ya empezaba a dominar en los primeros años de la
década de 1930.

Muchos besos,
R
