What if retirement homes were replaced with grandma’s cottage? New article and video series begins

New article and video series looks into the future – and shows how people at Aalto are building it.

 

The stories, pictures and videos from the ‘What if...?’ series present seventeen research, art and teaching projects from different parts of Aalto University that are ambitious, impactful and bold. Thanks to our researchers and students, the textiles of the future can be grown in Finnish forests, 3D glasses can be part of an electrician’s toolkit, and soon there will be a hundred Finnish satellites orbiting in space. But what if every student had their own well-being coach? And what if cows all over the world ate Finnish wood?

Find out about the projects and the people behind them at whatif.aalto.fi. We also publish a new video every week in Aalto’s social media channels – follow them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn and Instagram, with hashtag #whatif. Enjoy and share!
