Description Academic Bookshop, by Alvar Aalto:

Hugo Alvar Henrik Aalto was a Finnish architect and designer, sometimes called the "Father of Modernism" in the Scandinavian countries.


Aalto's Academic Bookshop is a singular building of beautiful geometric forms, with an austere exterior and an excellent interior lighting given by two big glass skylights. The building of three floors takes advantage of the spaces and includes a Café on the far balcony.
