Aalto University Works
Currently in planning phase, Aalto University Works includes renovation of existing buildings, as well as construction of new buildings and a green area improvement project. This is the last block on the campus with major renovations. It is also the first block on the campus where old buildings are being demolished and completely new are build to replace them. There is plenty of municipal utilities going through the block and a power plant that generates heat for a wide area through natural gas and geothermal energy. The zoning is not completed for the whole area.
After completion, Aalto University Works will house the departments of the School of Engineering, Department Machine Hall of the School of Electrical Engineering, Aalto Design Factory, Startup Sauna, Aalto Ventures Program and partners of Aalto University.
From idea to innovation
Aalto University Works as a name builds on the history of the block as place for building, iterating and testing. At the same time it updates the concept towards today's activities of collaborating and co-working.
Innovations are the result of successful encounters, ideas, experimentation and testing with multiple prototypes and continuous iteration. The vibrant Aalto University Works brings together actors, spaces and opportunities to create innovations: tools for creating prototypes to be tested and research laboratories for developing finished products, technologies and new research results.
The block encourages interaction between learning, research and society by bringing together new ideas, top-performing researchers and students sharing their expertise. Together, they form the core functions of Aalto Works: ideate, create, develop and support.
