Corporate Relations


The guild of architecture has their students interests at heart in the corporate world as well. We cooperate with several companies and on this page, you can find out how to get involved in the activities of architecture students.


AK Foundation

AK-Foundation is a co-operation network between the Guild of Architect and leading companies in our field. Companies gain priviledged visibility in the guild’s activities while students become acquainted with future employers and material suppliers. The income the guild gets from the cooperation network is used to maintain the general well-being of the guild and to support our cabin in Sipoo, called Maja. The aim of AK-Foundation is long-term cooperation that benefits both parties. Contracts are always tailored to the needs of the company.

In 2023, the AK-Foundation include Oras, Vitrea and PihlaPRO


Other forms of cooperation
