An enchanting journey into the life and work of one of the greatest modern architects Alvar Aalto. The film shares for the first time the intimate love story of the Finnish maestro and his architect wife Aino Aalto. Together they gave their signature to iconic Scandic design. The first cinematic portrait of their life love story is a fascinating presentation of their creations and influence around the world. The directress takes the viewer on a cinematic tour to their creative processes and iconic buildings all over the world. We visit their works in Finland, a library in Russia, a student dormitory at MIT, an art collector’s private house near Paris, a pavilion in Venice – and many other unique places. Narrated by experts in the field and featuring never before seen archive footage, AALTO tells the love story of an extraordinary couple with a great passion for human scale architecture.
