From the back cover of Alvar Aalto y Erik Bryggman:

Este libro, que se publica coincidiendo con el centenario del nacimiento de Alvar Aalto, ofrece un detallado estudio de algunas obras maestras de la arquitecture moderna y un riguroso y nuevo método de análisis de la obra arguitectónica.

El autor profundiza en las primeras obras functionalistas de Aalto y Bryggman – Villa Mairea, el Hospital de Paimio o la Capilla de la Resurrección – indagando en ellas a través de una metodologia que facilita la comprensión global de la obra como pocas veces se habia hecho.

El acierto del planteamiento y una escritura clara y vigorosa que va mucho más allá del tecnicismo abren una nueva e interesante via para la percepcíon del hecho arquitectónico, tan válida para el especialista como para el lector interesado por la materia. Incluso el lector profano puede encontrar un buen pretexto para adentrarse en este mundo a través de una cuidada expresión y abundate acompañamiento gráfico.
