Aalto University’s new campus building is shortlisted for the 2020 Finlandia Prize for Architecture
Aalto University’s new campus building is one of the four nominees for the 2020 Finlandia Prize for Architecture. The building consists of the School Art, Design and Architecture (the Väre Building), the School of Business and the shopping centre A Bloc. The design is based on Verstas Architects’ proposal for the open, international competition in 2013.
Previously, the building has been received The International Architecture Award (2019), the Hurraa! Award, a recognition from the City of Espoo. It has been a nominee for the Mies van der Rohe Award (European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture) and shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival awards.
The recipient of the the 2020 Finlandia Prize for Architecture will be revealed on October 5th.
