School of Architecture partner in densifying Tammela in Tampere

The City of Tampere has launched an ambitious project in Tammela, an inner-city district of Tampere. The aim is launch a radical process to rethink the neighbourhood together with residents and other users. The districts' 170 housing companies will have a decisive role. School of Architecture, together with researchers and students of Regional Science in Tampere University, will act as mediator, providing research information, benchmarks and participatory tools. A new collaborative website, designed by Tuomo Joensuu (TUT) and Minna Santaoja (UTA), will be launched during the summer 2014.
