The 1939 New York World's Fair brought together composer Jean Sibelius and architect Alvar Aalto, at least in spirit, during a crucial episode in Finnish history. A recording of Sibelius’s stirring Andante Festivo was played inside Aalto’s labyrinthine pavilion: two symbols of a nation still confident under Russian threat. In this lecture we learn more about that Finnish architect, who designed not only impressive buildings, such as the Finlandia Hall, but also textiles, glassware and furniture.
