Architects and designers are invited to participate in an open international design competition to reinvent the use of fibrecement as a material in urban environments. The competition brief is related to transit areas and the station area of Malmi in Helsinki is the location where the competition proposals are to be placed.
Entrants are asked to think about the “Arrival to Malmi” by 5 different means: train, bus, car, bicycle and walking. Each of the means of arrival has specific areas to be addressed. However the concept should also address the challenge on a general level, in which the emphasis should be placed on the overall concept. Fibre cement should have a major role in the proposal; although other complementing materials and solutions can also be used.
The organizers warmly invite ideas-level proposals to be submitted in the competition to be evaluated by a distinguished international jury. The jury will select the top 3 proposals to be further developed into prototypes, to be re-assessed before the final order is decided. The winning proposals will be realized in an exhibition as prototypes during the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 (WDC Helsinki 2012) in May 2012.
