Going back to 1932… Around that time the Finnish architect Alvar Aalto finished the Paimio Sanatorium in Paimio, Finland. The building served exclusively as a tuberculosis sanatorium until the early 1960s, when it was converted into a general hospital. Today the building is part of the Turku University Hospital. The sanatorium was nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
