About the designer;

Hugo Alvar Henrik Aalto (1898-1976) was born in Kuortane, Finland. His father, Johan Henrik Aalto, was a Finnish-speaking surveyor and his mother, Selly (Selma) Matilda (née Hackstedt) was a postmistress. When Aalto was 5 years old, the family moved to Alajärvi and from there to Jyväskylä in central Finland. Aalto studied at the Jyväskylä Lyceum school and completed his basic education in 1916. In 1916, he enrolled to study architecture at the Helsinki University of Technology, graduating in 1921.

In 1923 he returned to Jyväskylä, where he opened his first architectural firm. Jyväskylä would become a remarkable city for its architecture, with more buildings designed by him than in any other city. The following year, he married architect Aino Marsio.

Their honeymoon to Italy sealed an intellectual connection to Mediterranean culture that would remain important to Aalto for the rest of his life. The Aaltos moved their office to Turku in 1927 and began collaborating with architect Erik Bryggman. The office moved again to Helsinki in 1933.
