Four competition entries have been chosen for the second phase of the Helsinki East Urban Centre competition. The entries chosen are Helsinki East Village, Jalan jaloin, ITIS SITI and Itä-Helsingin Glokaali keskusta
In total 48 entries were submitted for the first phase of the competition. The jury states that among the entries there are a lot of very good proposals. The Jury is in particular delighted about the variety and boldness represented by the proposals and ideas.
The proposals that were selected for the second competition phase all treat the whole competition area with equal sense of quality. Each of these four proposals respond in their own way to the goal of creating a new centre for Eastern Helsinki.
Citizens had an opportunity to vote for their favourite by liking it and to leave comments on the proposals on the competition website. ITIS SITI, East Central Park and Helsinki East Village received the most likes.
Evaluation of all competition entries will be completed during the evaluation of the second phase entries. All entries chosen for the second phase will be at the prize class. In addition, the competition jury may decide to purchase distinguished entries from the first phase of the competition and give honourable mentions.
Second phase competition entries will be published on the competition website in June 2020. The results of the competition will be published provisionally in October or November 2020. The results and evaluation report of the competition will also be published on the competition website.
