Seinäjoki City Theatre

Alvar Aalto designed the theatre in 1968, but it wasn’t completed until 1987, under the supervision of Elissa Aalto. The facade is constructed of dim white ceramic blocks. The airy foyer is furnished with Artek pieces and houses Aalto’s unique collection of bent wood reliefs. The curtain of the Alvar Stage is titled Daedalus, and was designed by Juhana Blomstedt.
