April 26: Southern Finland tour – Säynätsalo 2
More from Säynätsalo.
At the top of the assembly hall stairs, nice shallow steps between landings, no diagonal railings needed even.
A cascade of clerestories, looking back down the stairs.
Grillz for light diffusion, I guess.
The entrance area.
Another courtyard view.
Looking down the corridor back toward the entrance and stairs.
A beautiful topographic model of Säynätsalo (which is an island in Lake Päijänne) and its buildings, including the Town Hall, which see just below the centroid of the island.
More corridors & pallety doors.
The railings, as usual in Aalto's projects, have a carefully considered cross-section.
Around back, a tenuous-looking ladder.
The tower volume from the front of the complex.
The south side of the south building.
Elevational view of the tower.
