Helsinki 360° is a response to the International Ideas Competition „Greater Helsinki Vision 2050“. The proposal aims to guide the Greater Helsinki municipalities along their common path into a bright urban future. With the objective to develop a well-balanced Region in terms of a functionally mixed and sustainable urban network structure in which various lively centers are interconnected Helsinki 360° does not propose a blueprint. Facing a complex set of very diverse and interrelated challenges, greater Helsinki needs not only a planning concept that offers guidance, but also one that is able to adapt to future circumstances that are impossible to foresee in detail. One of the main strengths of the ring-shaped network that Helsinki 360° proposes is the system’s built-in flexibility.
