This is a nice short video about Aalto, which points out that he was a designer of complete environments, sounding similar to FLW. It ends mentioning Wright’s appreciation of Aalto’s Finnish Pavilion. Makes you speculate that they might’ve been soulmates had they interacted and if egos allowed.
Speaking of Aalto’s Savoy vases, here’s a beautiful short video showing how they are manufactured. Very endearing to learn how hands-on the process is, involving human skill and craftsmanship. Makes me like them all the more.

Hidden treasures. Corbu fans (*gasp*) have only one building in America to admire . . .
Fehn's residential work tended to use brick and wood, however his non-residences bore more of a resemblance to the European modernists, more Mies than Corbu. His house plans would probably be deemed suitable by Laurie Virr.
One of cousin Sverre Fehn's most interesting structures is his Glacier Museum in Norway ... See:
