Design and implementation of future media centre moves ahead

As Aalto University centralises its activities in Otaniemi over the next few years, changes will also take place at Media Centre Lume.

With Marcus Korhonen in charge of operations and Aleksi Bardy responsible for academic planning, the university is designing a media centre for the future.

The university wants to create a media centre that meets international standards. The aim is to develop a cluster that provides wide-ranging service for research, teaching and product development at Otaniemi. Media Centre operations will support the university's other research areas in Otaniemi, such as acoustics, media technology and game research.

External stakeholders are also extensively linked to Media Centre preparations: during the discussions held so far, media industry operators have expressed their interest in being involved in planning and using the facility.

Implementation of the Media Centre began in 2016 with the merger of Media Centre Lume and Media Factory. This move lays the foundation for broad-based operations. The Department of Film, Television and Scenography, which uses the Media Centre facilities, and part of the merged media centre will already be moving to Otaniemi at the beginning of 2017. The old studio facilities at Lume will utilise opportunities provided by stakeholders and provide a place to test the functional concept for the future media centre.

When the new Väre building designed for the School of Arts, Design and Architecture is completed in 2018, all school functions will be based in Otaniemi.
