Abstract
In analyzing Aalto's Town Hall, I soon discovered that grid or structure were not formative ideas, but that the emphasis was on the general organizing concept of the building (the square and the courtyard), and on volumetric compositional modifications of this idea, in response to programmatic functions. I decided to investigate these catalysts of creation through the interplay of mass and light, which are both strongly defining qualities of the space.
