After completion of the Museum of Central Finland in the 1960s, followed by the Alvar Aalto Museum a decade later, both masterpieces by the Finnish architect will soon be annexed by a beautifully curved subterranean tunnel with a common café and outdoor event space. Silmu – Finnish for leaf bud – is the winning entry of the project’s public design competition. Until the new addition is built, the museum welcomes inquiring minds to its 8th International Alvar Aalto Design Seminar entitled Maximal Minimal. Come for the history. Stay for the innovation.
