    Kalasatama is a former industrial harbour area in uptown Helsinki. During the coming decades, the area is being transformed into a mixed use district. In collaboration with Part Architects, we worked as coordinators for temporary uses, in order to vitalise the place and help creating its new identity while large areas are still being built. Working together with different grass roots organisations, we initiated a strategy and platform that enables the active participation by people of all ages.
