Preliminary Schematic Design and Urban Design Masterplan for a Airport City at Helsinki Airport (Mixed-Use: Business, Leisure and Living)
Airports play a central role in the fast moving, ever globalizing world and Airport Cities have become the platforms of exchange between the local and the global. At Helsinki Airport (HEL) the Aviapolis area has established itself as the fastest growing business locations in Helsinki Metropolitan Region. Year 2014 a railconnection will link Aviapolis to downtown Helsinki.
The Aviapolis Station Quartier is a sustainable mixed-use development standing above the main station of this business district. As a hub for the area the development will form the urban heart of Aviapolis and act as a benchmark for other projects in the area.
The mixed-use program consists of three main components: 1. mobility services, 2. a mixture of living and working, and 3. leisure and tourism oriented services.
