The many speculative writings found in Finnish architect Alvar Aalto’s notes show an interesting array of information
about the construction of a knowledge society, and the formation of networks, in which sharing and exchanging new
knowledge among different bodies of architectural agencies become possible. These notes reveal insightful remarks,
his personal accounts on the Internet and the growing Network Society that could be regarded as pioneering scholarly
engagements, which still further stimulate new and profoundly articulated reflections in architectural theory. At the
same time, these notes also encourage further scholarly studies on the possible relationships between time and space
on philosophical grounds. With respect to his writings, one can summarize Aalto’s contribution under three major headings:
the future is nestled in the past; often what is sought is located in the unthinkable; and of many, Alvar Aalto will
never cease to be new, unexpected and innovative in his design thinking methods and procedures.
Keywords: Network Society, Alvar Aalto, Democracy, Transparency, Individual and Collective Action.
