SOUTH HARBOUR HELSINKI

HELSINKI

 

A MASTERPLAN TO RETURN THE HARBOR FROM THE CARGO LOGISTICS TO PEOPLE

The South Harbour in Helsinki has a rich history, which is currently masked by a myriad of strictly functional spaces. This project sets out to do the obvious ? return the harbour to the PEOPLE of Finland. A few large scale shifts make room for a diverse series of small-scale, water-oriented public uses that ensure a lively space throughout the day and all the seasons. These moves together add up to creating a true Stadi Terassi or Helsinki Terrace, a place for people spilling out from the inner city, and for guests arriving from the waterside. All can find a place along the water to actively engage with its history, culture, and public life.
