Aalto 2015 Campus

The Aalto Campus 2015 competition strives to “[interweave] a natural way and create the foundation for a university city of the future” by the year 2015.

I designed this entry to the competition with my colleague Matthias Neumann and several others at Ethelind Coblin Architect in New York City while working as an intern designer during the summer of 2012.

Our entry focuses on the creation of a new Arts building for a recently recombined Aalto University in Otaniemi, Finland, near Helsinki.  Our main goal is interconnectivity between the seemingly disparate campus buildings completed between the 1950s through the 2010s.  The original plan and former main building of the existing Otaniemi campus, as well as several others, were designed by Finnish architect and university namesake Alvar Aalto.

I shared design responsibility and produced all imagery and 3D models for this entry in Rhinoceros and Photoshop, respectively.  I also used GIS and Revit to design an accurate site model digitally.
