THE ALVAR AALTO CAMPUS – Acropolis in the pine forest The architecture of the Jyväskylä campus represents Alvar Aalto’s (1898  –1976) modern synthesis of Greek and Roman antiquity, combined with the AngloAmerican campus tradition. The landscaped main campus is largely accessible only to pedestrians, with a sports field in the centre.
