Masters of Aalto 2013- Dreams Made Real

Our world is constantly screaming out its needs and wants, presenting us with an endless stream of moral dilemmas, opportunities and tough challenges. How do we make the right call, build the right things or plan the right approach? How can we create the future we want?

These are the questions that have shaped Masters of Aalto 2013: Dreams Made Real. The answers from our graduating Masters are as wildly diverse as they are on point. They represent hope, inspiration and vision – each and every work is one student’s effort to sculpt their part of a better future.

Dismantling the false barriers between science, design, art, politics and myriad other disciplines means arming oneself with formidable resources to transform the world. Aalto students are already shaping the future – and you can see the seeds of revolution right here.

Enjoy the vitality, diversity, inventiveness and buoyant positivity of our Dreams Made Real. We hope they’ll become your dreams too.

Me and We

Me and We asks how creative and production processes themselves are changing – across design, business and technology sectors.
