In a new initiative, Factum Foundation and Skene Catling de la Peña have acquired Alvar and Aino Aalto’s first industrial building, a cellulose silo in Oulu, northern Finland. It will be redeveloped into a creative research centre focused on the documentation of industrial buildings, on innovative technologies to record environmental change, and research into sustainable materials.
