Co-op city

Tomi was part of a multidisciplinary team that won the Nordic Built Cities Challenge’s Kera local challenge. The team consisted of 13 members and 3 experts from B&M architects, WSP Finland and Sweden, Setlementtiasunnot, Päivi Raivio and Forum Virium. According to the jury report the team’s proposal called Co-op city “proposed a great concept focusing especially on the social, humanscale aspect of city development – true to Nordic values and the competition criteria.” Tomi was responsible in WSP Finland especially for the Co-op concept’s urban regeneration process, the 20 minute neighborhood urban context and the fine-tuning of the urban structure originally made by B&M architects to meet the competition objectives.
