Four-Cornered Villa located on an island in a remote lake in Finland, designed by Avanto Architects. I love how this view is framed so simply and with such purity.

Villa Mairea was built in 1938. Aalto said that the idea behind this project was " (…)avoid artificial architectural rhythm in the building without giving up pure form as long as it could be obtained in harmony with the structure or with an increased use of materials and surface ornaments that are inherently pleasing to the senses”.
