'The Finnish rowhouse – from working-class housing to middle-class dream' exhibition is showing gems of this lifestyle familiar to all Finns, with the hand of Alvar Aalto and his architect contemporaries powerfully in evidence.

Based on extensive research by Professor Riitta Nikula, the exhibition tells the intriguing story of the rowhouse, uncovering the eventful history of rowhouse living from the 1900s to the 1960s. The exhibition uses drawings, photographs and films to present this high-quality everyday architecture.

The exhibition explores a less-familiar aspect of Alvar Aalto’s work. Visitors can also see designs by architects such as Eliel Saarinen, Erkki Kantonen and Birger Federley.

The exhibition uses drawings, photographs and films to present this high-quality everyday architecture. The project has been produced by the Museum of Finnish Architecture.
