Description:

With the mission to revitalize the area of Eliel and Asema squares downtown Helsinki, the concept “Klyyga” was developed. Translated into “the crossing” in local slang, Klyyga aims to both fit in and add to contemporary Helsinki. The project emphasizes on the two city grids that meets at these squares, Elielinaukio and Asema-aukio, and the aim is to create a vibrant new plaza and city block, supporting the Helsinki urban strategy: To make the city center more vibrant and accelerate green mobility.

Klyyga stands for a system of crossings to reconnect city, urban landscape, and people to create a dynamic and livable area west of the historical railway station – inviting to in- and outdoor social interaction, green environments, openness and equality for citizens, visitors, and travelers.

The goal is to strengthen the areas’ identity by adapting to the city’s framework, revitalizing the public realm, and building a new city quarter.
