Aalto Residency - Säynätsalo Town Hall in Jyväskylä Finland

New residency: The Säynätsalo Town Hall in Jyväskylä Finland
The Säynätsalo Town Hall will become an increasingly attractive place for domestic and foreign travellers to visit. Our new four-season concept will include launching a residency programme for architects and designers. To support the accommodation services and the residency activities, a new café will open at the Town Hall in summer 2018.

A new concept for the Säynätsalo Town Hall with new services
In its new identity, the Säynätsalo Town Hall’s significance as a landmark of modern architecture and design will be emphasised. Already a go-to destination for travellers, students and architects interested in the architecture of Alvar Aalto, the building is frequently visited by international student groups. It has also gained a growing fan base among American, Japanese and Chinese visitors with a taste for modern Nordic architecture.

In October 2018, the new international Residency Programme for Architects and Designers will be launched. To begin with, the programme will offer accommodation and studios for 6–8 students and researchers for 1–2 months during the winter season. The Alvar Aalto Foundation is the content production partner.
