New Helsinki Waterfront / by DCPP arquitectos

NEW HELSINKI WATERFRONT / by DCPP arquitectos

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.

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.

We propose three main elements that will bring together development of ‘the Dnieper Pearls’.
