Abstract

On the 29'h of May 1995, the preeminent British-American architectural theorist Colin Rowe wrote to his friend Michael Spens in Scotland, sending him a postcard of Alvar Aalto's library at Mt. Angel Abbey. 'I send you a present from Oregon; he began, 'James Tice took me here the other day and I became a convert: and I don't mean to the Order of St Benedict but to this particular Aalto library. But have you seen it?'
