ASA building is a former electronics factory by Asa Radio. It was bought and renovated by Åbo Akademi.
“The ASA factory building has retained its identity well. Few new openings have been made in the existing exterior walls. The new use and architecture are revealed in the semi-open courtyard. Adjoining the new entrance an airy, light-flooded hall has been built providing access to other parts of the building: the library, auditorium and work facilities. The systematic and efficient, almost oppressive spatial organisation has gained a fresh new look by the addition of the new entrance.”
