Masters of Aalto year show will enliven the future living area and enviroment of Jätkäsaari, by taking over a 100-year old port warehouse designed by Lars Sonck, converting a disused warehouse space into a vibrant environment.
The newly graduated masters from Aalto University are confident about their future and present their theses from the fields of art, technology and economics at the Masters of Aalto (MoA’12) event. This years theme is Our Future is (a) Present.
The three disciplines of the Aalto University – art, technology, and business – are on display all through May in events, encounters, and presentations. The tradition of the MoA year show comes from the University of Arts, Design, and Architecture, where the exhibition has been the core of the event. This time, MoA’12 offers the public a wide variety of public events like seminars, film screenings, and workshops.
The international seminar Zombie innovations or true development organised by UNICEF Finland on 11 May, discusses effective ideas for global wellbeing. The seminar Designing for a Sustainable Future on 29 May, showcases how to design more liveable and sustainable living environments. Among the speakers addressing the seminar will be Toshiko Mori, architect and professor at Harvard University.
