The Cultural Heritage of Otaniemi One risk, caused by the removals to Otaniemi, is the threat the new urban development brings to the heritage of the area. There are remarkable architectural and natural values possibly at threat. The original city plan of Otaniemi area was made by the acclaimed architect Alvar Aalto and many of the buildings at the core of the campus have been designed by him as well.

Ahlava’s architecture practice helsinkizürich has been commissioned by cities and private companies in the design of city centres, public building, residences and recreational facilities. He has won prizes in international architectural competitions in Switzerland, Germany, Qatar, China and Finland. He would like to thank everyone who has been involved with the campus development of Aalto University during the past two years and especially professor Jarmo Suominen, whose developments in service architecture have been crucial also for this article.
