Alvar Aalto in Rovaniemi

Alvar Aalto is one of the most famous finnish architects. He designed the reconstruction plan of Rovaniemi in 1944-1945. The reconstruction plan of Rovaniemi is concealing a puzzle picture of a reindeer: two branches of the central park are outlined as reindeer horns, two are defining reindeer’s head and one it’s back. That is why it is called "Reindeer Antler Plan".
