Aalto University

Autumn 2012 

GUI Competition Finalist

This project aims to connect the separate schools of the Aalto University in Finland by creating a new center on the Otanemi campus. The new art and architecture school positions itself over the metro entrance to redirect the circulation through a main atrium. This flow of people defines the layout of interior spaces by moving from a dense core of shared public program to a sparse perimeter of individual private spaces. When the landscape and building meet, a new exterior circulation path is established that blurs the boundary of the landscape and building.
