Workshops - Aalto School of Arts, Design and Architecture


Biofilia is a biological art unit which provides a platform for trans-disciplinary research and education.

Previous projects and courses have been carried out in collaboration with other players and various specialisation programmes such as Visual Cultures, Curating and Contemporary Art as well as the Master's Degree Programme in Industrial and Strategic Design. It has also been possible to organise and plan lectures and laboratory sessions in collaboration with Biofilia. 

Biofilia is open to all Aalto students, faculty and staff, free of charge, provided that they have completed the introduction course. The Laboratory Manager is available to assist in designing experiments and assessing feasibility. In Biofilia, it is possible to make life glow, to see DNA, and to create a film of cells. The lab provides a full complement of modern cellular and molecular biology equipment: pipettes, fridges and freezers, centrifuge, water bath, scales, PCR and gel electrophoresis, sterile cabinets for bacterial or mammalian cells, microscope and much more.
