Campus 2015. Aalto University
The competition consists of designing a new School of Arts, Design and Architecture in the current Aalto University's Otaniemi Central Campus.
The edges of the competition area are defined by the main building of the former Helsinki University of Technology and the Main Library, both designing by Alvar Aalto.
Project target was a new interactive research&learning environment. The main idea was an open and powerful vertical interactivity of three different stacked worlds. Level +1 is the academic world, the level below is the public world and the level above is the natural world. It makes an urban tissue, perforated by a pedestrian system of a boulevard, streets and a series of patios.
The schools are divided by departments like independent buildings and connected by bridges at Level +1 and by a running track at roof Level.
