With 400 images and drawings, this book presents architect Alvar Aalto's famous library in Vyborg, Russia, and the international efforts since 1994 to restore it. Within this extraordinary example of modernist design, its original plans dating from 1927 and constructed with modifications between 1933 & 1935 is a catalog of innovative concepts that reflect Aalto's most mature and influential work.
