AHOLA, TAPIOLA

TAPIOLA

Pentti Ahola built it in 1961 to 1964. It’s placed in Finland in the middle of nature.

Pentti Ahola’s acting is the formation of the horizontal city through a set of courtyard houses. The courtyard becomes the hall and also the corridor of the house. Everything is distributed around this central courtyard, is the element that characterizes the house. Many authors have come to speak of Tapiola as a reinterpretation of the courtyard houses.

The courtyard corresponds to a percentage of 41,86% in this case. Is the biggest example that I’ve analyzed until now.
