II What’s going on


What do you want to speak about at the moment?
It’s here again! This year’s Architecture Student Days are different, yet much louder than before! 👀👀
The event starts on Friday 2nd of October at 2 P.M. with interesting speakers. As the whole event will be held remotely, everyone can join and watch the stream from the safety and comfort of their home-sofas. In the evening we have an entertainment show and we recommend you to grab a few of your closest friends and hold a picnic in front of your screen.
We will publish a more detailed schedule with speakers and performers later, so stay tuned!
The stream links will be published at this Facebook event and at Architecture Student Days webpage.

Otatarha Grand Prix

The last day of September, the day of the Lakinlaskijaiset party is once again started with the Otatarha Grand Prix, a competition that doesn’t lack speed or fun!
Challenge yourself and others, design and build the greatest vehicle and come and compete for the win of the race at Otaniemi sport track! You and your friends have a chance to participate in this contest wilder than the Formula 1 races with a self-built vehicle that isn’t motor-powered. Points will be awarded for the vehicle’s aesthetics and speed, but also for the overall spirit of the team. The winners of the race will receive glorious prizes, so start preparing for the contest NOW!

Even if you don’t participate in the race, you should watch the stream by OUBS, or come to Otaniemi sport track spectator stand to enjoy the stunning race atmosphere! If you are considering joining live, you must give your contact info at the entrance! Note that there is a limited number of people we can fit in the stand. We recommend watching the event remotely
Since the event takes place in Espoo’s sport area, smoking, alcohol and snus is forbidden in the event
