Local context and Identity

Architect's task always begins with analysis. What, why, for whom. What kind of environment, what kind of future prospects. What is needed more of, what is not needed at all. How does it all function, how could it work even better. Jari Lonka, head of our Urban Planning & Development department, gave a lecture on the subject of Local context and identity, two cornerstones of design, in Sotkamo yesterday. The development seminar for Vuokatti (Sotkamo) tourism destination area focused on the forthcoming area master plan and development strategy.
