Väre, the newest Aalto University building for the School of Art, Design, and Architecture is a vibrant space for dynamic encounters in Otaniemi Campus. Inaugurated in September 2018, Väre is situated in the intersection of two principal coordinates, Otakaari 1 and the Harald Herlin Learning Centre.

Our programme emphasises innovatory co-producing, circulating knowledges and strengthening the dialogue for the whole University and diverse collaborators. Väre offers a multitude of exhibition spaces for showcasing creative work and hosting transdisciplinary meetings.

V1 & V2

Väre offers two white cube spaces ready to host a wide spectrum of exhibitions with various themes, media, and collaborations.
