Tampere Townscape Committee active

Tampere Townscape Committee (in Finnish: Kaupunkikuvatoimikunta) has been active since 2010. I was invited to join the Committee in 2013. In the rapidly growing city, the importance of a voluntary, independent and expert-driven forum that aims to improve the quality of public space and urban architecture is clear. In short time, the Townscape Committee has shown that a critical and constructive debate and benchmarking before applying the building permission is an efficient way to add value and ensure excellent result. In coming years, Tampere is realising increasingly complex and demanding projects. Thus, the value of this forum will only grow.
