Field of Connections

The bundle of roads connecting the city of Vaasa offers an opportunity to develop a project at a territorial scale which focuses on the forest and the road as the catalyst for urban development. We preserve this natural wealth through the reuse of the existing roads and the minimum occupation of the building surface. Our living proposal requires a rethinking of the forest as a sequence of ever-changing gardens. We leave the AK-2 site as free as possible by pushing the housing development to the edges. With a simple interior organization (4×4 sqm for main rooms, 2×4 sqm for service rooms) we propose a perimeter of service rooms for the apartments and the gardens. We have an external ring of main rooms, an intermediate ring of service rooms, an interior ring of communal spaces and gardens, and a forest heart. The territorial proposal is made up of different follies with a common language.
