Eight proposals chosen for the next phase of the Aalto Garden Otaniemi competition
There's snow falling outside now, but it'll be green sooner than you think. We have the names of eight shortlisted project groups, one of which will be selected at the end of January as the new Otaniemi garden design.
The first phase of the Aalto Garden Otaniemi competition ended on 15 November 2011. A total of 24 entries were submitted by the deadline and one after the deadline. In addition to the late entry, three incomplete proposals were submitted.
The jury held a meeting on Tuesday 22 November 2011 to assess the proposals and selected eight proposals for the next phase of the competition. The pseudonyms of the proposals are:
Aalto Vase Garden
The shortlisted participants have been notified by email and further information on the competition will be sent to them shortly.
The Aalto University Degree Programmes in Environmental Art and Landscape Architecture jointly launched a student challenge. The aim of the competition was to design and create a visually high-quality, open-minded and feasible campus garden for the area between Otakaari and Rakentajanaukio square on the Otaniemi campus.
