Otaniemi campus changing at speed – earthwork to begin
Earthwork for the New Building (Väre) will begin in the middle of the campus, next to the metro station in the area between Otakaari 1 and Tietotie 1, on 1 December. The Väre building is due for completion in spring 2018, and it will be used by the Aalto University School of Arts and Design. The total floor area of the building will be approximately xxx m2, and the new Metro Centre with commercial services will be located there in addition to Aalto University’s functions.
Väre is based on the entry by Verstas Architects that won the architectural design competition in 2012–2013. The core campus building will be fresh and clear, and it will facilitate encounters thanks to its varied premises and the multidisciplinary nature of the areas of study.
