About the Gallery spaces

Lobby is the first space you get to when entering the Learning Centre. Its interiors are Alvar Aalto’s legacy, but after renovation the space has been customized to serve as an exhibition venue.

In Finnish, Tori means a public square, a meeting place, or an open space. It hosts a learning hub, Visual Resources Centre, a café and a nine-meter media wall with eight screens. The Media Wall serves as a channel for HHLC and university communications, and as a space for media works exhibitions.

Foyer is a gallery space in the library's 2nd floor, that can be used to exhibit objects, drawings, textiles, posters, as well as all kinds of course works.

Aalto galleries and exhibition venues

How can we make space for unexpected ways of looking at the world? Galleries and exhibition venues are co-produced spaces for action, bringing together the knowledge, content, vision, and passion of different agents.
