Civic Square (1988) by Alvar Aalto in Seinäjoki

17 Pins21 Followers
The Town Hall, library and theatre circle form a square in the middle of granite paving and cobbles. The Aalto Centre was built gradually, with the Civic Square, its fountains and plantations completed last. The pavement of the square continues across the street on the east side, thus connecting the administration and cultural buildings to the ecclesiastical buildings and forming an artwork comprising six buildings and a square.
