JKMM to Design the New University of the Arts Helsinki’s Campus Building
The University of Fine Arts Helsinki will be getting a new campus building on Sörnäisten rantatie, next to the Theatre Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki. Our winning entry was a consortium project developed together with Veritas Pension Insurance and Lujatalo Oy.
The new building will house The Academy of Fine Arts, as well as serve as the heart of the campus, bringing together theatre, dance and arts studies.
Sörnäinen – a traditional industrial area of Helsinki – has been developing rapidly in recent years. Today it is a lively neighborhood with a unique urban culture. The new building, sporting a red brick façade and rough aesthetics, will complete its surroundings perfectly.
The building is scheduled to be completed in 2021.
