The student works in the studio course Future Media Center will be shown at the Undergraduate Centre in the old Architecture building by Alvar Aalto in Otaniemi (Otakaari 1X). The exhibition is part of Aalto Festival 2017.

Architecture Building Design Master Course exhibition presents projects, which are based on a real initiative and need for spaces for a media education centre as part of Aalto University. The University has suggested a site in the centre of Otaniemi, near the new building of the School of Arts, Design and Architecture. The University needed alternative studies to see how it could function and how it would fit to the surroundings. The Media Centre will be an accessible and welcoming gathering place for the public while providing amenities for high-quality performances and research in the field of Media and Film. The main aim of the studio was to teach how to design an architecturally advanced large public building.

Teachers: Pirjo Sanaksenaho, Sari Lehtonen, Fernando Nieto, Claudia Auer, Heikki Viiri, Toni Kotnik.

Partners: Aalto ACRE Campus & Real Estate / Aalto Campus Services Antti Ahlava.
