Lecture by Dr. Tammy Gaber
Throughout his prolific career, Aalto designed and collaborated on the design of furniture, lamps, glassware, and hundreds of buildings. Aalto readily adapted not only lessons from external sources, such as international architecture, artworks, and natural formations, but also continuously adapted and developed his own design approaches typologically.
Dr. Tammy Gaber will focus on the typology of the worship spaces and will demonstrate that there was a continued, mostly linear, development of this particular type throughout the half-century of his architectural career. With a detailed study of unbuilt and built church (and parish) projects, through archival studies of design sketches and site visits to a number of the built projects, she will identify the distinct phases of church (and parish) design by Aalto.
The lecture will be on November 28, 2020, at 1pm in Säynätsalo hall.
Dr. Tammy Gaber is an Associate Professor at the McEwen School of Architecture, Laurentian University in Sudbury, Canada. Dr. Gaber has visited Finland a number of times in the past and is currently on an academic sabbatical, spending time in Aalto residency in Säynätsalo Town Hall and Jyväskyla for this research.
There will be limited in-person seats at the Town Hall, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a reservation.
Additionally, the lecture will be live-streamed. Information about the stream will appear on this site later.
