This is an interesting project for the city of Helsinki, meets the same as other interventions port.
Resource Palette appears dominated by large open areas, balconies, galleries, half-buried passages, clear and strong intention to emphasize the edge of the water and especially the free projection of the city towards the sea. These data indicate the need to see these cities to recover a vital element such as water, transferred to other interests in the past.
I guess we can take note and assume that architects here have as well.
“The South Harbour district of Helsinki needs to reclaim its connection to the sea. In doing so it will offer much-needed revitalization to a local community, and provide the city an architectural symbol that proclaims its status as cultural capital.
With this in mind, we sought to create a dynamic urban zone that is an edge condition between the natural and the artificial environment. Our proposal is an urban spine which acts as a nexus for three primary systems: water, parks, and built environment. Each system interpenetrates into its adjacencies, creating a dynamic and fluid urban stage that allows for multiple tempos and maximum performance.
