Enchanced urbanity

A city with a park (or garden) at it’s core is a fair and modern concept that has inspired many planers to this day. In our case though, the dense vegetation of Hyvinkää hides pockets of neglect, spaces with potential locked by a strictly functional use. The city requires a simultaneous approach from three key directions: the creation of quality public spaces; an efficient and modern transit hub and a plan to increase density in at its core. By making use of the local topography, the project can mitigate between the large dimensions required by the transit infrastructure in a small scale city center. The layout emphasizes existing relevant spaces and builds new opportunities for space, architecture and urban life to take place. The forest remains a unifying element for the entire scene.
