New web magazine to celebrate multidisciplinary expertise

Inspiring contents, solutions for the future and rich visual narrative. All of this is provided by the School’s new online magazine.
Aalto ARTS 150 years visuals

The Long Read by Aalto ARTS is a new web magazine of the School of Arts, Design and Architecture, featuring our most impactful contents and projects. Our students and researchers are constantly solving complex challenges our society and the world are facing,  and offer fresh perspectives and radically creative solutions.

The web magazine is part of the 150 celebration of the School of Arts, Design and Architecture this year with a determined look to the future.

In the future, better designed living environments, human- and environment-oriented design, sustainable living, creative thinking and reliable, research-based information will play an increasingly central role. Creative practitioners generate sustainable growth, prosperity and new jobs. They also form an even more significant part of the Finnish economy.

Our creative professionals have played an important role in shaping Finland’s cultural and economic development. They have helped to build the Finnish identity both nationally and internationally. Our students, researchers and alumni have a wide impact in various areas of society, both nationally and internationally.

In 2021, the School has been highly ranked internationally, art and design being sixth in the world and architecture the world's 42nd best in the QS World University Rankings.

The Aalto School of Arts, Design and Architecture is a Nordic leader in higher education for design, fashion, games, media, architecture, film, art education and art. We produce world-class research in art education, design and design thinking, digital media and visual culture, urban planning and architecture.

In the web magazine, new stories will be published throughout the year. A Finnish version will also come out soon.

During our anniversary year we will also present our solutions for future at numerous events to which we invite all our friends and collaborators. There are seminars, webinars, lectures and exhibitions available, yet currently online due to restrictions.
