    Description :

    Describing the museum (Vol. I, p. 210 of Artemis's Aalto series), Aalto wrote: "Lighting is as important for an art museum as acoustics for a concert hall. That is why I used asymmetrical illumination, with rounded reflectors under the roof openings. Sun-light from the west and south is also utilized by means of reflecting roof surfaces, which are clad in places with aluminium or enamel tiles. The surrounding tall beech trees form a filter which—together with the seasonal changes of colour—give the lighting a life of its own."
