Villa Mairea
A free hand
Cell by cell to form a complete entity
A Modern Manor House
Other Private residences

Aalto was now given a challenge: a free hand as far as the client was concerned, no strict cost calculations, only design. This is still as rare for architects now as it was then, and it caused pressures of its own: numerous sketches were made for the Villa Mairea, in search of a suitable layout. It looks as though Aalto made a kind of inventory of his work up to that time in a search for ideas that might be usable in designing a residence.
