Game Changers – Aalto's impact on society

Game Changers is both a physical and digital timeline, spanning from the 19th century till today and into the future.

Stories about people, events and innovations are visualised on the page, which have derived from the Aalto time and its predecessors. We will also publish videos of Game Changers. The first video introduces Professor Gustaf Komppa, a game changer in chemical industry.

Please, visit Game Changers ( and suggest your story to the timeline by clicking on the 'propose' button. Should you have an anecdote related to an already published story, you can send that the same way.

Game Changers is one of the some twenty Aalto Finland 100 projects (
