GREATER HELSINKI VISION 2050

This design competition involved designing a framework for the sustainable development of the metropolitan region of Helsinki and its 15 neighboring municipalities. The development target is 2050. The aim is to establish a first class living and leisure environment to stimulate  the local economy.

With the project goal to grow to two million people and the vast open landscape, Greater Helsinki has the potential to develop into an attractive, competitive and sustainable metropolitan region. THIRDLIFE is a leap forward towards this metropolitan development. By entering this stage in its development, Greater Helsinki will establish its position as the economic generator of Finland and become a player in the global network of metropolises. The challenge for the region is to combine urban growth with the preservation of landscape and nature. The coastline, which is the most powerful characteristic of the region, forms the basis for the emergence of a sea metropolis, offering the most desirable and authentic Finnish living conditions.
