Skill Shapes is a temporary artwork that decorates the Aalto University metro station façade. The theme of the work is the merging together of students' skills on the Otaniemi campus. The colourful figures represent students and the forms in the background symbolise Aalto University's fields: technology, business and arts. The combination of the forms reflects the university's multidisciplinary approach and altogether the work communicates about collaboration and the university's communal values.
Ahonen's design draft won the competition, which was organised for graphic design students at Aalto University in 2015.
