Support the project

From a space used for storing wood chips, to a store for knowledge

The plans for AALTOSIILO have already been met with enormous enthusiasm which attests to Aalto’s enduring appeal and legacy.

Notable cultural figures, such as art historian Sir Norman Rosenthal (former head of The Royal Academy, London), Jasper Parrott (founder of Harrison Parrott who represent Sakari Oramo and Taavi Oramo among other Finnish composers, conductors and performers), and photographer Armin Linke (who photographed Aalto’s work for a book by Vitra, now the owners of the Artek Archive), have already offered their support.

We are working closely with Oulu City to make the regeneration of the building, and the area around it, part of the rejuvenation of this industrial/residential/natural area to the northeast of Oulu city centre. Oulu included the AALTOSIILO as part of their bid to become the European Capital of Culture 2026.

The fundraising to support the restoration of this great building is ongoing and we need your support! If you are interested in being part of this dynamic and rapidly-developing project please contact us at
