Discussion open all summer on the Voice Your Opinion service
The four competition teams selected to participate in the second stage of the competition have refined their proposals based on feedback received from the jury and residents. The planners have been provided with further instructions regarding the detailed design of building facades, the preservation of important landscapes and the maximum height of buildings, among other things.
“The competition area is wholly unique. The South Harbour is the crown jewel of Helsinki, so expectations for the competition are high. In terms of planning, the most important objective is to find a solution for turning Makasiinranta into an appealing seaside urban space for both residents and tourists. I encourage all residents to have a look at the competition entries and comment on them. Now is the time to participate and make your voice heard,” urges the Mayor of Helsinki Juhana Vartiainen
The proposals are currently on display and can be commented on between 4 July and 31 August 2022 at kerrokantasi.hel.fi
. Each proposal includes an introductory text in Finnish, Swedish and English. The appendices of each proposal are available in English.
The competition entries will be displayed in the lobby of City Hall from 4 to 31 August 2022. The competition posters will be printed out in A1 size for viewing.
“The competition teams have taken the objectives of the Carbon-neutral Helsinki programme to heart, with most of the climate change mitigation solutions put forward in the competition going beyond those of our past urban development project of similar size,” adds Mayor Vartiainen.
