About the building

Otakaari 4 also goes by K1, short for Konetekniikka 1 (Mechanical Engineering 1), named after the Department of Mechanical Engineering for which the building was constructed. It mainly houses teaching and research facilities of the School of Engineering.

Designed by architects Jaakko Kontio and Kalle Räike, the building was completed in 1966. The special feature of this three-story building is the sawtooth-shaped roof windows of its large lecture hall and it's tile facade, similar with the neighbouring Undergraduate Centre.
