The series of documentary films by Rax Rinnekangas about outstanding private houses is shown at the Alvar Aalto Museum during year 2019. The films provide a perspective on the idiom and philosophy of major architects of the modernist era.

The world-famous architect Konstantin Melnikov (1890–1974) designed his utopian home, an icon of modern architecture, in the centre of Moscow in the late 1920’s. When Joseph Stalin prohibited modern architecture in Soviet Union, Melnikov was denied his right to work as an architect and was in practise placed under house arrest for years. This film tells the amazing story of the Melnikov House and the fate of an architect imprisoned in his utopian house.
