We have created new main square connecting the metro station, the new ARTS Building, and the former main building and library.
In contrast to the volume of the new building, a rather wide, free-flowing green area has been created north of the new building, infusing new additional importance to the old campus idea. The seemingly compact new building is divided by several inner courtyards and gardens. Outdoor spaces around the building are extended into the building in interesting ways by covered walkways and galleries at ground and basement level, as well as terraces and balconies in the upper floors.
The designs of the outdoor and indoor spaces have been richly integrated to create a network of movement throughout the whole area and balconies in the upper floors.
The new main square becomes the heart of the campus, and together with Keilaniemi and Tapiola it shapes a dynamic learning community, where science and art meets business and technology.
