We get dressed each and every day: clothes protect us and help us express ourselves. We can dress better when we re-design the whole textile process from manufacturing to use to recycling.
Helsinki Design Week 2021 has landed in Otaniemi, showcasing three paths to resource wisdom
Resource wisdom means using raw materials, energy, products, time, and facilities with care.
Wise design respects our common future. It advances wellbeing and carefully considers the impacts of our choices on future generations, society and biodiversity.
In Finland, our close relationship with nature is combined with high technological and design expertise.
Under three subthemes, Designs for a Cooler Planet presents glimpses of a wiser future with thirty of Aalto's research-based projects. Take a look into the future!

Due to corona restrictions, please book your visit beforehand. Aalto students and staff can visit the Otaniemi campus exhibitions without a pre-booking.
Construction gobbles up half of the world’s natural resources. Collaboration between scientists, designers, architects, the public sector and companies generates ideas that can make living environments and the construction industry more sustainable.
