OPD 2019 will take place in Dipoli in the main building of Aalto University, and a popular meeting place. Dipoli was originally designed in 1966 by Raili and Reima Pietilä as the new university building for technology students. The renovated Dipoli building was opened in the summer of 2017. Known for its multifunctional spaces, the building continues to function as a meeting place: in addition to being used for the university’s own events, its facilities are also open to the public. The bedrock and surrounding forest have inspired the sculptural copper and granite facade, which is a Finnish architectural gem.
