I took part in a panel discussion the other day. The topic was how do we live in Helsinki 2020. It was a very interesting talk and I'm happy that Helsinki is actively looking for different housing possibilities. The discussion was part of the exhibition currently on display at Laituri. It shows eight already realized urban housing cases from cities across world and scale models of dream homes that are based on the interviews with Helsinki citizens. Who knows, maybe we also have a chance to live in urban townhouses or floating homes in the near future!
