Aalto in Detail – A Catalogue of Components (Birkhäuser, 2022) by Céline Dietziker and Lukas Gruntz is a rich photographic record of the unique details of Aaltos’ works.
This carefully curated catalog celebrates the rich detail in the work of Aino, Elissa, and Alvar Aalto. Every support, railing, and handle is the result of intensive formal and functional research. Céline Dietziker and Lukas Gruntz document fifty Aalto buildings – some well-known and others less so – and arrange their photographs by component into nineteen chapters. The result is a rich photographic record that will serve as a source of inspiration for every architect.
The text is in English. The book consists mostly of high-quality colour photos.
