April 26: Southern Finland tour – Jyväskylä University 2
More from the university and vicinity.
Here's the prism skylight of the library.
Heavy vs. light.
And here's what the conelights look like on top, pretty hardcore.
More skylights, over an open porch.
Grounded view of the roofway area from before.
The rear of the main building.
Inside maybe a dining hall.
A quite different style of building.
This is the Aalto Museum (designed by himself, built 1973) just down the hill from the campus.
On the way, a bench interlude.
Inside the museum, some seductively smooth brick tiles.
A sampler of Aalto chairs.
This is like that other thing, you know, the one with the stuff. (That is, the interior of the Finnish pavilion at the 1939 World's Fair.) (Also like the aurora borealis.)
Hey look it's Aalto's house in Munkkiniemi!
And Villa Mairea!
