A_Pocket Student Design Competition was organized in autumn 2017 by Aalto University Campus Development and Aalto University Campus & Real Estate in two phases. The objective was to find innovative and feasible proposals for the A-Wing courtyard at Otakaari 1X. Participants were encouraged to propose ways to enhance the social and spatial character of the site as part of the campus. In October 2017, the jury selected five finalists out of 40 ideas submitted in the 1st phase. The finalist teams developed their designs with mentors during the fall term, and finally presented their work in an open event on 7 December 2017. The jury awarded all five teams and in addition to the 1st prize given to “Kaija“. Proposals “Voices of Aalto” and “A_Fire” were commended with honourable mentions.
