    PROCEEDINGS 5th PLATE Conference
    (Aalto University, 2023) Niinimäki, Kirsi (ed.); Cura, Kirsti (ed.); Muotoilun laitos; Department of Design; Taiteiden ja suunnittelun korkeakoulu; School of Arts, Design and Architecture
    The 5th international PLATE conference (Product Lifetimes and the Environment) addressed product lifetimes in the context of sustainability. The PLATE conference, which has been running since 2015, has successfully been able to establish a solid network of researchers around its core theme. The topic has come to the forefront of current (political, scientific & societal) debates due to its interconnectedness with a number of recent prominent movements, such as the circular economy, eco-design and collaborative consumption. For the 2023 edition of the conference, we encouraged researchers to propose how to extend, widen or critically re-construct thematic sessions for the PLATE conference, and the paper call was constructed based on these proposals. In this 5th PLATE conference, we had 171 paper presentations and 238 participants from 14 different countries. Beside of paper sessions we organized workshops and REPAIR exhibitions.

    Quo Vadis Architectura? 8 - Nils Erik Wickberg lectures
    (Aalto University, 2020) Aarti, Erkko; Celsing,Johan; Helander, Vilhelm; Niskanen, Aino; Paavilainen, Simo; Sanaksenaho, Pirjo; Thynell, Paul; Vesikansa, Kristo; Arkkitehtuurin laitos; Department of Architecture; Taiteiden ja suunnittelun korkeakoulu; School of Arts, Design and Architecture
    The Department of Architecture at Aalto University has organized annual Nils Erik Wickberg lectures since 2005 to honour his legacy. Professor Wickberg was an architect, architectural historian, and multi-talented ideologist. This book comprises lectures from the 14th Symposium held in autumn 2018 on the theme of Quo Vadis Classicism? When considering the theme of the 2018 lectures, we tried to find a topic that touches on both the history of architecture and contemporary architectural design. In recent architecture, traces ofClassicism can once again be found. Classicism is usually associated with harmony, restraint, and adherence to the recognised principles of the form and style of ancient Greece or Rome. In recent student projects and competition entries by young architects, we can seesymmetrical facades, gable roofs, vertical windows, and other Classical features after a long period of Modernism. The Symposium Programme began with Professor Aino Niskanen’s introduction to the theme, and continued with Professor Vilhelm Helander’s presentation of C.L. Engel’s architecture in theEuropean context, after which Professor Simo Paavilainen spokeabout 1920s Nordic Classicism. Before the lunch break, we heard music from the Classical period, played by Tuija Hakkila on forte- piano and Mikael Helasvuo on flute. In the afternoon it was the turn of the young architects: Paul Thynell and Erkko Aarti, and finally, the keynote speaker, architect Johan Celsing from Sweden, gave an inspiring lecture entitled ´Plans, Metres. How the Work of Poets May Inform the Crafting of Buildings´. His poetry recitation made the event special. I hope that this publication stimulates new interpretations of Classical architecture and reminds us of the interesting lectures in October 2018 at Aalto Hall. Helsinki, November 24th 2020, Pirjo Sanaksenaho, Professor of Building Design, Head of Department of Architecture, Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture

    Art as we don't know it
    (Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture, 2020) Berger, Erich (editor); Mäki-Reinikka, Kasperi (editor); O'Reilly, Kira (editor); Sederholm, Helena (editor)
    2018 marked the 10th anniversary of the Bioart Society and created the impetus for the publication of Art as We Don’t Know It. For this publication, the Bioart Society joined forces with the School of Arts, Design and Architecture of the Aalto University. The close history and ongoing collaborative relationship between the Bioart Society and Biofilia – Base for Biological Arts in the Aalto University lead to this mutual effort to celebrate together a diverse and nurturing environment to foster artistic practices on the intersection of art, science and society. Rather than stage a retrospective, we decided to invite writings that look forward and invite speculations about the potential directions of bioarts. The contributions range from peer-reviewed articles to personal accounts and inter-views, interspersed with artistic contributions and Bioart Society projects. The selection offers a purview of the rich variety, both in content and form, of the work currently being made within the field of bioart. The works and articles clearly trouble the porous and provisional definitions of what might be understood as bioart, and indeed definitions of bioart have been usefully and generativity critiqued since the inception of the term. Whilst far from being definitive, we consider the contributions of the book to be tantalising and valuable indicators of trends, visions and impulses. We also invite into the reading of this publication a consideration of potential obsolescences knowing that some of today’s writing will become archaic over time as technologies driven by contemporary excitement and hype are discarded. In so doing we also acknowledge and ponder upon our situatedness and the partialness of our purview in how we begin and find points of departure from which to anticipate the unanticipated. Whilst declining the view of retrospection this book does present art and research that has grown and flourished within the wider network of both the Bioart Society and Biofilia during the previous decade. The book is structured into four thematic sections Life As We Don’t Know It, Convergences, Learnings/Unlearnings, Redraw and Refigure and rounded off with a glossary.

    Interplay of Cultures : 25 years of education in global sustainability and humanitarian development at Aalto University
    (Aalto University, 2018) Hollmén, Saija (editor)
    In recent decades, many Western architectural schools have taken up the challenge to tackle global polarities and humanitarian crises. Educational programs raising awareness of the “south – north”, “developing – developed”, “poor – rich” dichotomies are all asking the same question: What is the role of architecture in the globalizing world? Since 1993, the Department of Architecture at Aalto University has offered courses on development issues dealing with the reality of architecture, building design and urban planning outside Europe, with cultural understanding as the starting point. The course, originally called Interplay of Cultures, was first developed and undertaken by architects Hennu Kjisik and Veikko Vasko, under Juhani Pallasmaa’s deanship. From the beginning, it has been about careful analysis and learning about local conditions, about communication with local stakeholders and communities, and listening to the needs and aspirations of the local people. It has been more about pondering the values on which we base our profession, and the moralities we choose to follow in our practices – and what we can learn from ourselves, when venturing out to the unknown. It was, and still is, about mutual learning and respecting other ways of seeing the world. In recent years the focus has moved from strictly architectural towards more interdisciplinary approaches, embracing disciplines from other Schools of Aalto University – namely from Aalto University’s Sustainable Global Technologies (SGT) Programme, where students in multidisciplinary teams carry out projects linked to global development challenges in collaboration with partners from academia, industries, government and civil society, organizations and local communities. The exhibition, first organizes at the Museum of Finnish Architecture in 2018, and this catalogue discuss questioning and redefining the role of architecture in our societies and the globalizing world, where the challenges are too big to tackle with one disciplinary knowledge alone.

    The Other Side : interplay of cultures Zanzibar Studio 2018, Master's level course in Architecture
    (Aalto University, 2018) Lonka, Emmi (editor); Alnimri, Hannin; Bergene, Andreas Juul; Čerpnjak, Tina; Dwiyani, Talisa; Esquivel Velázquez, Andrea; Hollmén, Saija; Kleinbergs, Kristaps; Lige, Keiti; Lonka, Emmi; Navarrete Suárez, Fernando; Niskanen, Taru; Niubò Bermejo, Anna; Sandman, Helena; Soares, Francisco Correia Mascarenhas; Suomela, Miia; Väisänen, Rosa; Taiteen laitos; Department of Art; Taiteiden ja suunnittelun korkeakoulu; School of Arts, Design and Architecture
    How does the potential rise of the sea level affect a small island like Zanzibar? How can a city become more resilient against seasonal flooding through architectural solutions? What is the vital power of shade in an equator climate? How to sustainably prepare for future densifying urban areas and accelerating population growth through planning and regulating? These are some of the questions we hope to offer insight to between these covers. In February 2018, the multidisciplinary architecture design studio Interplay of Cultures took 13 Aalto students to Zanzibar. The main focus of the studio is architectural design in developing countries. The work of this year's team presented in this publication will guide the reader through ten individual projects covering scales from global to local and public to private. Moving from global environmental future to someone's home porch - a "baraza" - these ten projects create a deeply intertwined network of urban development proposals for Ng'ambo, the new city center of Zanzibar. Five months of research, fieldwork and project development has focused on the core themes of environmental resilience, community empowerment through public space and housing for future urbanisation. Research and project development was conducted in collaboration with the Department of Urban and Rural Planning of Zanzibar, Zanzibar City authorities as well as local university students and the residents of Zanzibar.

    Meidän koulu muotoilee
    (Aalto University, 2018) Lumme, Minna (toim.); Keinonen, Turkka; Korhonen, Arja; Mattelmäki, Tuuli; Anetjärvi, Sauli; Lehtonen, Sari; Majantie, Petra; Mäkelä, Lilli; Muotoilun laitos; Department of Design; Taiteiden ja suunnittelun korkeakoulu; School of Arts, Design and Architecture
    Muotoilun teemoja on sisällytetty viimeisimpiin perusopetuksen opetussuunnitelman perusteisiin. Aikaisemmin muotoilu on ollut oppimisympäristöissä läsnä lähinnä ammattilaisten toteuttamien suunnittelu- ja sisustusratkaisujen osana. Muotoilulähtöisten toimintatapojen ja osallistuvan suunnittelun tuominen osaksi oppimisympäristöjen kehittämistä on vielä suhteellisen uutta. Meidän koulu muotoilee -projekti on ensimmäisiä hankkeita, joissa osallistuva suunnittelu on ollut vahvasti keskiössä. Se on ollut osa Opetushallituksen rahoittamaa innovatiivisten oppimisympäristöjen kehittämiskokonaisuutta, jonka tavoitteena on ollut kehittää joustavia ja toiminnallisia oppimisympäristöjä. Projekti on toteutettu Järvenpään kaupungissa, ja siihen on osallistunut viisi järvenpääläistä peruskoulua. Aalto-yliopisto on toiminut aktiivisena yhteistyökumppanina projektissa. Sen tehtävänä on ollut osallistua projektin suunnitteluun ja rakenteistamiseen. Aalto-yliopiston muotoilun ja sisustusarkkitehtuurin opiskelijat ovat osallistuneet koulukohtaisten mikroprojektien sekä muiden yhteissuunnittelutoimintojen suunnitteluun ja toteuttamiseen. Projektiin on osallistunut seitsemän Aalto-yliopiston opiskelijaa. Tohtoriopiskelija Minna Lumme on toiminut projektin projektikoordinaattorina ja hän valmistelee aiheeseen liittyvää väitöskirjatyötä. Nyt käsillä olevassa julkaisussa esitellään projektissa tehtyjä kokeiluja ja reflektoidaan niiden soveltumista joustavan ja toiminnallisen oppimisympäristön kehittämiseen. Tämä kirja on jatkoa Aalto-yliopiston julkisten palveluiden yhteissuunnittelua käsitteleville julkaisuille Hyvinvoinnin muotoilu (toim. Keinonen ym. 2013) ja Palvelumuotoilu saapuu verkostojen kaupunkiin (toim. Jyrämä ja Mattelmäki 2015). Meidän koulu muotoilee -projektin periaatteet ja toimintatavat rakentuvat siis pitkälti muotoilun tutkimuksessa ja opetuksessa vuosien aikana kertyneeseen osaamiseen ihmiskeskeisestä suunnittelusta, empaattisesta muotoilusta, yhteissuunnittelusta, ja keskittyvät näiden rohkeaan soveltamiseen nimenomaan koulumaailmassa. Tässä kirjassa kuvatuissa mikroprojekteissa on sovellettu erityisesti Keinosen (2013) kuvaamia hyvinvoinnin muotoilun periaatteita sekä Mattelmäen (2013) kuvaamia empaattisen muotoilun piirteitä. Työskentelyssä on korostettu muotoilijan työskentelyä yhdessä yhteisön jäsenten, niin lasten ja nuorten kuin aikuistenkin kanssa heidän omassa arkisessa elinympäristössään. Materiaalien ja työtapojen valinnassa on pyritty valitsemaan työtapoja ja materiaaleja, jotka ovat helposti lähestyttäviä, jotka sopivat lapsille ja nuorille ja jotka itsessään vahvistavat hyvinvoinnin kokemusta työskentelyn aikana. Johdantona aiheeseen Minna Lumme ja Tuuli Mattelmäki jäsentävät kirjan ensimmäisessä ja toisessa luvussa yhteissuunnittelun ja lasten ja nuorten osallistumisen avainteemoja ja yhteissuunnittelun soveltamista ja merkitystä osallistavana prosessina koulussa. Näissä luvuissa kiteytetään projektin antia reflektoiden uusinta aiheeseen liittyvää kansainvälistä tutkimusta. Kirjan muut luvut kuvaavat tarkemmin yksittäisiä kokeiluita. Sauli Anetjärven kirjoittama luku kertoo oppilaiden ja opettajien yhteissuunnitteluun kehitetystä suunnittelupelistä ja sen prototypointiin liittyvistä kokemuksista. Sari Lehtonen, Petra Majantie ja Minna Lumme raportoivat kokemuksia rehtoreiden ja opettajien kanssa toteutetusta yhteissuunnittelutyöpajasta, jossa ideoitiin ja mallinnettiin joustavaa ja muuntuvaa luokkahuonetta, uutta tapaa käyttää koulun erikoistiloja sekä siirtymätiloja oppimiseen ja oleskeluun. Lilli Mäkelä ja Minna Lumme kuvaavat projektiin osallistuneiden koulujen muotoiluprojektit. Kahdessa yläkoulussa nuorten kanssa toteutettiin kahvilatoiminnan käynnistämiseen liittyvät muotoiluprojektit. Yhdessä alakoulussa lasten kanssa ideoitiin ja toteutettiin erilaisia lukujurttia ja oppimissoppia. Toisessa alakoulussa nuoret halusivat puolestaan suunnitella lukuhuoneen ja ideoida uusia wc-tiloja. Lisäksi Lilli Mäkelä toteutti projektin aikana muotoiluprojektin, jossa yläkoululaisten oppilaiden kanssa kokeiltiin 3D-tulostuksen mahdollisuuksia. Viimeisessä luvussa pohditaan yhteissuunnittelun mahdollisuuksia ja haasteita tämänhetkisessä peruskoulussa.

    Opening up New Textile Futures through Collaborative Rethinking and Remaking
    (Aalto University, 2018) Niinimäki, Kirsi; Salolainen, Maarit; Kääriäinen, Pirjo; Muotoilun laitos; Department of Design; Master's programme of Fashion, Clothing and Textile Design; Taiteiden ja suunnittelun korkeakoulu; School of Arts, Design and Architecture
    Textile design is a field where art and technology meet. In the broad field of design, textile design is regarded as a special discipline because it requires not only creative skills, but also a deep understanding of production technology. Textile designers use and sometimes even create materials from a molecular level in collaboration with material scientists (e.g., Kääriäinen, Niinimäki, & Lindberg, 2017; Aalto University School of Chemical Engineering, 2015; Smirnova, Ilén, Sixta, Hummel, & Niinimäki, 2016). The textile and clothing industry (including technical textiles) is one of the largest industrial sectors globally, with a huge economic and environmental impact. Textiles are designed for many different purposes, and accordingly textile designers have an important role to play as material experts and interpreters of users’ needs. This is not enough, however. In the future, textile experts will need a complete understanding of the complex system of textile commerce, use, and lifecycle. Textiles are an essential part of our everyday life and will be needed to protect and comfort us even in an increasingly digital future. Textile design education at Aalto University School of Art, Design and Architecture (Aalto ARTS) has gone through major transformation during the last decade. Recent developments in textile education are based on three key elements: (a) developing a new, effective pedagogy, which has been essential in opening textile design courses to fashion students as well as other design students; (b) building bridges across disciplinary boundaries to enable collaboration between design, science, and engineering disciplines and (c) establishing academic research. By opening up textile design courses to other design fields and disciplines, Aalto ARTS has renewed the presence and importance of textile design, not only in academia but also in society. Knowledge creation in the textile field is more dynamic and collaborative than ever before.

    Requests from Companies and Requirements for Design Education in Brazil: where do they meet?
    (Design Research Society, 2018) Nicoletti Dziobczenski, Paulo; Person, Oscar; Tonetto, Leandro; Rech Mandelli, Roberta; Muotoilun laitos; Department of Design; Taiteiden ja suunnittelun korkeakoulu; School of Arts, Design and Architecture
    In this paper, we study what companies request from applicants for graphic design positions in Brazil. Based on a document analysis of 371 job advertisements, we uncover 35 different types of requests which we structure in terms of (1) Design deliverables, (2) Knowledge and skills and (3) Personal traits. In addition, we explore how the content of job advertisements potentially can inform educational developments by reporting on a group interview with design educators. In the interview we explore the degree to which different requests in the advertisements are covered in a regulatory educational design policy document for higher education in Brazil. Our results show that requests for skills in 2D software, an ability to deliver print and digital design outcomes and knowledge of layout and photography are frequently occurring in the studied advertisements. We also describe how the educators could locate the majority of the requests in reviewing the educational policy document. We end the paper by discussing how job advertisements could be further studied and used by design educators and practitioners.

    Design as a Catalyst for Sustainability Transitions
    (Design Research Society, 2018) Gaziulusoy, Idil; Erdogan Öztekin, Elif; Muotoilun laitos; Department of Design; Taiteiden ja suunnittelun korkeakoulu; School of Arts, Design and Architecture
    Transitions towards sustainability need for radical and structural changes in the social, cultural and organisational dimensions in addition to technological innovations and infrastructural changes. Sustainability transitions have been a research and practice agenda for several decades. Currently, a new area in design for sustainability field is emerging that bridges the theories and practices of sustainability transitions with theory, education and practice of design. In this paper, we investigate the emergence and evolution of this new area through a literature review of selected publications that represent the current approaches of integrating the theories of sustainability transitions and design. We provide an overview of the current status of the field as well as a comparative analysis of the main contributions regarding their theoretical groundings, sustainability definitions/measures, framings of role of design(ers) and methodological propositions.
