Ritva Koukku-Ronde, Ambassador of Finland to the United States, was among those in attendance. The book engages the architecture of one of the twentieth century's most popular and accessible masters through an integrated examination of his major works, and how they engage the light, climate, and topography of their sites, exemplifying the way in which Aalto extended Finnish tradition and engaged newly emerging Modern materials.. The event also celebrated the publication of "Aalto," authored by McCarter and published by Phaidon. McCarter discussed the book in an interview for the show "Section D," which was air August 12 on Monocle 24 radio.
