Alvar Aalto took the sauna incredibly seriously. This one of the most famous Finnish architects built a number of them and ended up going back to the traditional idea of the smoke sauna. He had already written about Finland needing a new culture of sauna in the 1930s. I think he saw it as a cliche that had lost its route, and he wanted to bring back the cultural side of sauna, referencing both Finnish and Japanese traditions.

We are reviving the old traditions of sauna and naturalistic lifestyle in this impressive industrial summer house, hidden deep in the Lithuanian forests, drenched in clay and lost at that time..
