Exhibition venue beta SPACE located at Otakaari 1 X, Espoo provides the Aalto University community with a space for experimentation and reflection, without focusing on particular disciplines. The course exhibitions from Art, Design and Architecture departments are combined here with curated content from various fields, related to the University teaching, research and other activities. The architect of this elegant and beautiful space is Alvar Aalto.
