Summary On the eve of the Second World War, Finnish architect Alvar Aalto (1898 - 1976) designed the Villa Mairea for his close friends, Maire and Harry Gullichsen, in Noormarkku near the west coast of Finland. Located in a pine forest adjoining an old sawmill area, the house was to become one of the most notable icons in modern architecture.. In this episode of MASTER HOUSES, we explore how the Villa Mairea is a unique artistic microcosm influenced by international modern architecture and art, Finnish cultural heritage, and Japanese aesthetic tradition. The film also illustrates the design process of the project that turned into one of the seminal houses of the entire modern era
