Admirers of Finnish master Alvar Aalto have a new avenue by which to explore the architect’s built works in Finland. The Alvar Aalto Foundation has formed a partnership with Google to offer virtual tours of 8 key Aalto projects in his homeland, including his own house and studio in Helsinki, and defining masterworks Finlandia Hall and Kulttuuritalo.

Google’s panoramic Street View application provides viewers with impressively uncanny views inside some of Aalto’s most famous buildings, serving the Alvar Aalto Institute’s goal of making Aalto—a revered creative force whose name remains largely unknown outside Europe—and his architectural oeuvre accessible to a wider audience. The collaboration is also a significant feather in the cap of Google’s Cultural Institute, the company’s lofty initiative aimed at turning a global archive of cultural data into engaging online exhibitions, accessible to anyone with a computer.  Finlandia hallAalto Studio
