Studio Mumbai has created for the Museum of Finnish Architecture a vivid impression of their architectural practice. On display in the exhibition are artifacts and handmade prototypes made from local materials. The studies in form provide an enlightening example of the office’s work process, where they serve as the artistic starting point for the buildings under construction.
Alvar Aalto Medal, carrying the name of the beloved architect and designed by Aalto himself, was founded in 1967 in order to honor creative architectural work.
