Editorial Reviews

Martin Filler
...a concise and cogent book about the architect's built works....Aalto's skillful fusion of opposites is underscored by the subtitle of the Museum of Modern Art's exhibition and catalog, "Between Humanism and Materialism....that duality...is addressed in the catalog's collection of excellent essays....This scrupulous chronological survey brings to mind the classic displays that decades ago made MoMA exhibitions a watchword for clarity and good taste. -- Martin Filler, The New York Review of Books
