Previously know as the main building of the School of Business, the beautiful building was renamed Aalto University Töölö.

From the beginning of 2021, the main occupant of the building will be Aalto University Executive Education Ltd (Aalto EE), which provides executive education and leadership development services globally. Versatile and modern office and training facilities for leasing purposes have also been created in the building. In January 2021, Restaurant Töölö will open a restaurant, banquet hall and auditorium open to everyone, where various parties, concerts, dinners and seminars can be organised.

The Töölö building represents a functionalist style. The design of the premises of the building, completed in 1950 (inaugurated on 2 April 1950), was carried out by architects Woldemar Baeckman and Hugo Harmia and interior design by interior designers Olli Borg, Ilmari Tapiovaara and Maija Heikinheimo. The building's acoustics was designed by Paavo Arni. The brick wall and Michael Schilkin's reliefs also link architecture to the romantic trend of the 1940s. The building is part of the Docomomo International Register, a site for modern architecture. After the building was emptied in February 2019, renovation and modernization work began. They building was returned to the original spirit of the 1950s and the building service systems were renewed.
