I love Aalto's work, but this book was just dry.I give it 3.5 only because it's meant to be an inexpensive introduction to Aalto's work, and it is inexpensive..but the writing is just dry. You really get nothing from the articles about the buildings..but it is a nice intro to the architect's life and it does showcase a few of his best works...albeit in a dry manner..If you aren't really interested in his work, this is perfect for you.But if you want a decent look into some of his buildings and materials and philosophy, then your going to have to splurge a little
