Aalto Festival can be seen for nine days in the Helsinki city centre, where the Aalto Festival Info Kontti invites people to explore the festival and its diverse programme.

Visit Kontti (container in English) to get the coordinates for the different events, exhibitions and seminars taking place in Helsinki and the City of Espoo. The students will help you find the most interesting tips of the day, as well as answer your questions on the festival. You can pick up a free festival catalogue in Kontti, too.

Kontti is open daily until 27 May in the Mauno Koivisto Square, Mon–Fri at 10–18 and Sat–Sun at 10–16. The spatial design for Kontti is by an Aalto University MA student, Angela K. Lin (not pictured).
