Paimio Sanatorium

Nestled in the woods in southwestern Finland, about 29km from the city of Turku, is the Paimio Sanatorium. Developed in the 60’s in general hospital, this work was the result of a competition won in 1929, Aalto was 30. The Sanatorium, functional clearly has a very human approach typical of Aalto’s architecture that goes beyond the technical capabilities and that is mostly felt in the detail of its elements.
