Aalto’s Principles of Urban Space and Planning in connection to William Wurster and Lewis Mumford

Risultato della ricerca: Conference contribution

Abstract

The paper focuses on Aalto's principles about urban space and planning in connection to the influence of William Wurster and Lewis Mumford.Aalto made about 50 urban plans, many of which are not very known to scholars. They vary between contextual projects within the city, residential projects, civic centers, campus planning, cemeteries, and regional plans. During his stay in USA and also in Finland, contacts between Aalto and Wurster are known, while contacts with Mumford must have been unavoidable. Nevertheless, a reciprocal influence with Mumford is quite thinkable.Aalto's urban designs and writings are focused in connection to this twofold connection.
