Skanssi 2025 (2012)
Master plan by architecture office CEJ
Skanssi master plan set the basis for a sustainable, mixed use and triving urban development. The analysis and project were commisioned by the city of Turku and concluded with a extensive report.
The key elements are: simple traffic system to reduce car traffic in residential zones and foster public transportation throught the district; a grid block structure, that allows for different typologies; high density core but low density wings to provide a heterogeneus built environment; pedestrain loop connecting commercial facilities; two parks with different identities linking the neighbourhoods; multiple functions and typologies with density decreasing from the main boulevard towards the green buffers.
