2021 Vision

What would you include in a brand new building dedicated to media?

We are working on just that and would love to get your input now, when things are still on the drawing board. By the end of 2021, the new media centre will open its doors next to the new Väre building, right at the heart of the campus. In the meanwhile, we’ll prototype and research this future at our Otakaari 7 spaces, at the Harald Herlin Learning Centre, at Maarintie 8, and around Helsinki at our satellite facilities in Roihupelto and Kallio.


We’ve moved from initial research into actual architecture. Here’s how we’re pacing ourselves.
