Architecture and urban construction in Kuopio

Location: Kuopio
Commissioned by: Kuopio City Council
Compiled by: Heikki Lamusuo and Architectural policy working group of city of Kuopio

2007

This architectural policy programme for Kuopio provides a description of the current state of architecture and construction in the city, sets targets for the future and defines the measures required to achieve those targets. The aim is to help the people of Kuopio to value their own environment and encourage them to take responsibility for its further development. Implementation of the programme will call for both political and financial commitment and long-term efforts to improve the quality of the built environment. The City Council should set an example for other people in this matter. The main aim should be an original and authentic city of Kuopio which is a pleasant, safe place for all its people to live in.

We think that more important than flexibility for the creative collaboration is adaptability.
The ability to tell the same story even when the amount of pages in the book changes. With the knowledge collected having completed hundreds of small and large projects we can deduce that even though we are very proud of what we have accomplished the merit for our best work goes to our clients. They have shared our point of view that we only succeed because we share the same vision and dream. We design spaces, buildings and environments that are comfortable to live and work, pleasant to the eye and sustainable. We are creative design and architectural group, we want to create an inclusive world all around us - Piece by Piece.
