The Aalto University campus in Otaniemi is one of the main venues for the festival.
We want to keep the planet viable, and the next ten years will be crucial. Finns consume energy and natural resources four times over the sustainable level. During September 5-26, Aalto University’s unique Designs for a Cooler Planet exhibition ensemble will introduce solutions that support more sustainable lifestyles. Otaniemi galleries present eleven multidisciplinary exhibitions at which we can learn about future cruisers, the climate impact of construction waste, ecological textiles, products made of new biomaterials, participatory development of a city district as well as Finland’s exhibition from the Venice Biennial curated by Aalto.
As part of the event there are two satellite exhibitions both related in water pollution:
As a part of the Opening on the 4th of September, there will be PechaKucha Night. More details can be found here.
Please notice that exhibitions are located in four different buildings (Dipoli, Väre, Learning Center and Beta Space at Undergraduate Centre) at the Otaniemi campus area. Check addresses and exact opening hours from exhibition pages. Language in each exhibition: English
