Site No. 18: Town Hall Alajärvi (1966-69)
Located in Alvar Aalto Street 1 is the town hall of Alajärvi. The design of the town hall was inspired by the Alajärvi church which is located behind the building. The Alajävri town hall has the typical design Aalto used when producing public buildings as we will see also in the following examples given during this very trip.
Site No. 19: Heatlh Building Alajärvi (1966-70)
On the oppsite side of the town hall in Alvar Aalto Street 2 is the public health building located which was built during the same time as the town hall.Unfortunatelly the building was only viewable from the outside.
Site No. 20: Parish Centre Alajärvi (1966-70)
Also built in the same time as the town hall and the health building and located in Alvar Aalto Street 3 is the Parish centre of Alajärvi. Hereby the same strong language of form which starts from the town hall continues unbroken in the parish centre building. Also here the inspiration came from the church located just behind the parish centre. Unfortunatelly the building was accessable.
Site No. 21: Libary Alajärvi (1990-91)
Build after Aalto's death but according to his original plans the libary of Alajärvi was completed in 1991. It is located right behind the town hall and the parish centre in Kirkotie 7.
