UA Fay Jones School of Architecture Dean Peter MacKeith will give a talk Tuesday, Feb. 10, about Finnish master architect Alvar Aalto, described in the announcement by the Architecture and Design Network as Finland's foremost architect/designer of the 20th century, at the Arkansas Arts Center. There will be a reception at 5:30 and the free talk starts at 6 p.m. in the lecture hall.

In addition to architecture, Aalto designed furniture, textiles and glassware meant to coordinate with his buildings (Gesamtkunstwerk, I'm informed by web sources).

MacKeith has been dean of the school of architecture since July 1, 2014, He was previously a professor and association dean at Washington University's Fox School of Design and Visual Arts, and earlier directed the Master of Architecture program at Helsinki University of Technology, now Aalto University.
