Unused space for piloting learning space concepts

There’s unused 800m2 space in Marine Technology -building (Tietotie 1A, Otaniemi) that could be used for piloting Learning space concepts. Storage space has been rented for various purposes in past, but recently there has been discussion and planning to transform the space for learning and research purposes.

Research for further use of the space has been already done in Creative Sustainability -course (Ahlström & Salovaara, 2010), where has been defined key elements that should be considered in sustainable building design of the space renovation and plans for transforming the space into a “Cruise & Ferry Experience Program’s” estate with rooms for education, research, workshops and library (Ahola, 2010).
