This Competition is very complex and terms and conditions for the different areas very different!

Kauppatori - a concentrated visual jumble of funtIons and events: market stalls, streetcars, traffc, cyclists, tourists and sight-seeing boats.

Katajanokka - a port town characterized by high volume - terminals, cruise ships, business offices and heavy traffic.

Olympia terminal and Makasiini terminal - areas which are also characterized by strong port activities, with large areas dedicated for trucks and services in connection with the various port activities (the area cut off from the city and Tähtitornin vouri of the continuous Laivasillankatu.)

The contest must be viewed as 3 very different tasks, each with its architectural and urban traffic problems - ranging from the near human scale around Kauppatori to the 2 port areas which are dedicated to the necessary functions and requirements of traffic.

Kauppatori - the competition’s primary problem - is the area which was planned and dimensioned from prehistoric times with its particular demands. If Kauppatori is to function optimally - with respect to both traffic and marketing functions along with the desire for a new promenade solution, then Kauppatori must be larger - hence the idea of the project is to loop one of Kolera pools (there are typically 2 fishing boats: one in the morning, and the other at11.00 when there are also sightseeing boats) - to a staircase installation which is shown in the new plan with 2 new stone benches. In order to maximize any additional space and still have more room for promenades and bicycles, the second Kolera pool is moved slightly to the east and the Viron pool is positioned to the south. Establishing new sites for sightseeing boats and parking areas around Kauppahalli is dedicated to short-term parking.

Concerning Suomenliniian Lauttaterminaali, this is also a reduced parking area. The intention with these few interventions is to redesign Kauppatori as a single yet “new” urban space - not exposed to any new major disruptive architectural elements but rather a place defined by the pulsating kaleidoscopic life that characterizes today’s Kauppatori.

Katajanokka - It is sad that one cannot stroll along the quay’s edge - but then you have to construct a complex, which allows you to stroll above the ship-anchoring area! It is proposed that the existing Terminal Buildings K5 K6 K7 be demolished and replaced partly by a new Guggenheim museum and a new multi-functional system - an integrated promenade/residential/ office/parking/port technical facility that connects the museum with terminal K8.

Makassini Terminal M4 is to be rebuilt and integrated in a new design for the entire area. Both the parking areas and port technical areas shall be provided under the construction. The new promenade/bicycle combination continues up to this elevated construction and connects the area with the Olympia terminal. The park will likely be integrated at this new facility as a terraced construct (inspired by the fortifications at Suomenlinna and in time, new settlements can be added.)
