International Design Contest for Eteläpuisto Park Tampere and its Environs

In February 2014

Competition 1st Prize

"KCAP Architects&Planners with a team of international collaborators has been chosen as one of two winners in the competition Eteläpuisto Park Tampere. The competition is part of the Tampere city center development program. The design of team KCAP with as title ‘Sunny Side of the City’ has been chosen unanimously as shared first prize out of a selection of six competing entries. The task was to create a high-quality urban residential area and provide for programs suitable for the city structure and for the landscape. At the same time, recreational use of the shores had to be enabled while providing for a natural connection to Hämeenpuisto Esplanade. ‘Sunny Side of the City’ is a concept that brings the city to the lake and the lake to the city. New living is integrated into the park which offers a lake shore for everyone. The lake side in connection with the city acts as a catalyst for the development of the whole city and the wider region."
