The overall goal of the CMP is to guide the future use, care and conservation of the Paimio Sanatorium. The objective in preparing of this CMP has been to produce documents that bring together already existing historical records of the building, including defining of architectural features, physical analysis and the knowledge of the buildings performance over time to create a long-term strategy for decision-makers, contractors and users regarding conservation and maintenance. There were three main objectives for the CMP. The second was to prepare the best possible repair and maintenance principles and practices for the buildings and site.

Alvar Aalto

Sanitorium seating: it was important that the materials could be cleaned easily and of course comfort was a factor too. What do you visualise when someone mentions a hospital chair? Something clunky and hard to manoeuvre, maybe; a strange hybrid fireside-type chair typically involving wipe-clean sickly pastel-coloured vinyl. Designed by Finnish architect Alvar Aalto, it is named after the Paimio tuberculosis sanatorium in southwest Finland , which he also designed, and everything about it proclaims modernist principles. At the time, the main therapy for tuberculosis was sunlight and the hospital wings are angled to maximise exposure to the sun.
He never regarded himself as an artist, seeing painting and sculpture as "branches of the tree whose trunk is architecture. Typical for his entire career is a concern for design as a Gesamtkunstwerk , a total work of art , in which he — together with his first wife Aino Aalto — would design the building, and give special treatment to the interior surfaces, furniture, lamps and glassware. His furniture designs are considered Scandinavian Modern , in the sense of a concern for materials, especially wood, and simplification but also technical experimentation, which led him to receiving patents for various manufacturing processes, such as bent wood. In , he then enrolled to study architecture at the Helsinki University of Technology. His studies were interrupted by the Finnish Civil War , in which he fought.
