HELLO!

I’m Alper Kokcu. Join my journey where I am exploring cultures and ideas via the connection of art, nature and architecture.

Hello Aalto

Hello Aalto

On our short visit to Helsinki, I tried my best to see some of Alvar Aalto’s buildings in the capital. This was just a quick greeting to the master and I hope I’ll have more time to revisit in the future.

Photos are from our Baltic trip in the winter of 2016. Buildings in order of appearance: Finland Hall, Rautatalo Office Building and Academic Bookshop.

Kısa Helsinki ziyaretimizde, elimden geldiğince Alvar Aalto’nun başkentteki binalarını ziyaret etmeye çalıştım. Üstadı yalnızca hızlıca bir selamlamaydı bu ve umarım gelecekte daha uzun süreli bir ziyarette bulunabilirim.

Fotolar 2016 kışındaki Baltık turumuzdan. Binalar göründükleri sırayla: Finlandiya Binası, Rautatalo Ofis Binası ve Akademik Kitapevi.
