Existing Apartment Buildings as a Spatial Reserve for Assisted Living

Purpose

Ageing populations induce needs to adapt existing housing. With ageing, the number of frail old people, who require assistance in daily life, is also increased. Converting existing housing into assisted living enables them to remain in their community while receiving necessary support and care. The purpose is to investigate whether post-war mass housing is spatially appropriate for adaptation into group homes for older people.
Design/methodology/approach

The research material is attained from Finland. Spatial requirements for group homes are drawn from 130 units built or renovated during 2000–2015. Spatial characteristics of mass housing are mapped from 105 apartment buildings built in the 1970s. The latter are matched with the former by comparing the connectivity of layouts, sizes of units and the numbers and sizes of individual spaces.
Findings

Group homes typically utilize a linear layout, which can easily be created in apartment buildings. Individual spaces of a group home fit apartment buildings effortlessly. Whole group home units mostly prove to be spatially feasible but result in looser dimensioning than is typical in existing units. The mass housing stock can be considered a spatial reserve for adaptation into group homes.
Originality/value

This is the first study to employ a large-scale, multi-case spatial mapping approach to analyse the adaptability properties of mass housing into assisted living. The findings pertain primarily to the Finnish context, but a methodology is presented which can be applied to other countries and also to other spatial functions.

Pattern recognition and transformational growth adjustments alongside ring roads: Descriptive mapping from four case studies

This paper aims to examine the existing patterns of ring roads in four diverse cities—Greater Amman in Jordan, Kuwait City in Kuwait, Oslo in Norway, and Greater Helsinki in Finland—to explore how these patterns respond to growth and elucidate the contemporary urban practices of these cities. Spatial mapping was used to measure density, mixed land use, and accessibility and identify growth characteristics parallel to the tracing processes of spatial insertion, replacement, and use change. The results illustrate that in master plans, the areas alongside ring roads were delineated either too vaguely or too prescriptively. The existing patterns of road and land use, particularly high residential concentrations, challenge the functionality of ring roads and negatively affects urban spatial qualities and services that should accompany the high-density study areas. Cumulatively, they have formed spatial non-homogeneities that challenge accessibility and dependency factors. In addition, the growth indicators represent urbanisation processes, generative schemes, and counter-formulation actions, where the replacement of the physical structure and functional character of ring roads as road restructuring is a prerequisite for generating less vulnerable urban structures. Therefore, the cases presented here raise important questions about the challenges and potential of ring roads and the areas alongside them in urban structures, in the context of the sustainable growth agenda.

Developing architecture studio culture: peer-peer learning

Traditionally, architecture teaching has been centered around the architectural design studio , where students are taught usually on an individual project basis. This studio environment is a physical space but also a pedagogical and cultural space where learning and teaching happens. Students also regularly present their design and design process to tutors, external guests and peers. The studio is based on project-based learning and allows for reflective practice, and integration and testing of abstract knowledge into projects. This unique pedagogical tradition of studio-based teaching is based on ‘reflection in action’ , developed from the master-apprentice model, as a simulation of ‘real-life’ practice, with regular feedback on the student’s design development by tutors. However, studio culture can also lead to unhealthy practices, such as peer-peer pressure and competition, long hours, isolation from other activities, and stress when exposed to negative ‘public evaluation’ of one’s work. Nevertheless, studio culture can also support reciprocal peer-peer learning, which happens in formalized group work but also informally in the absence of tutors. Advantages include co-experimenting, and learning competencies, design processes and critical reflection from and with one another , building a student’s confidence to try new things.

Through four case studies, this paper illustrates ways to enhance the unique and positive aspects of studio culture, by fostering peer-peer learning to underpin and support deeper learning and healthier practices across years. Findings and reflections on each case are jointly discussed in concluding remarks at the end of the paper.

Integrating sustainability in design studio through blended learning

The complexity of sustainability often makes its integration into architectural education a difficult challenge. Consequently, sustainability is often not taught holistically or critically, leaving students confused as to what sustainable architecture is and how they might approach this themselves. At the same time, sustainable design must not be at the expense of our architectural imagination, yet within education and practice this is also often the case

This paper investigates how to bring sustainability knowledge into the studio instead of bringing the architecture studio to sustainability knowledge. In doing so, through two case studies undertaken at Aarhus School of Architecture, Denmark, the authors illustrate the integration of sustainable design in architecture studio using blended learning, such as making use of pre-recorded video lectures; group seminars, discussions and presentations; workshops and peer-peer learning as well as traditional studio drawing activities.

Changes within pedagogies need to occur to ensure that sustainability is embedded within the design education, acknowledging the dichotomy between the technical requirements and creative expression which are crucial for well-integrated holistic, sustainable architecture . To embed sustainability in the architectural studio, both poetics and sustainability need to be taught together, focusing especially on the aesthetic and spatial implications of sustainability. The key to integrating sustainability in the architectural studio is not only to give knowledge but to ensure that specific learning activities allow for the application of this knowledge into students' design process as well as to discuss the implications of this knowledge for the students’ own design project and the subsequent architectural language. This supports deep learning, critical thinking, and reflection skills. In the two cases outlined in this paper, this incorporation was embedded through developing studio-specific learning activities that cover both architecture and sustainability aspects, with students completing in-depth investigations and mappings of exemplary sustainable architecture case studies.

Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities: A H2020 project

The poster presents an overview of the H2020 project ‘Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities’ (CIRCuIT), started in June 2019, and Tampere University’s (TAU’s) planned activities. The project cities are Copenhagen (coordinator), London, Hamburg, and Vantaa, Finland.

The project has four areas of focus: (1) mapping the flows and stocks of materials in the built environment, (2) urban mining and recycling and reuse of building materials, (3) life cycle extension of buildings through their transformation, and (4) design for deconstruction (DfD) and adaptability.
In the first topic, i.e. flows and stocks of building materials, a material flow analysis is planned for parts of the building stock in Vantaa. The work is underlain by a previous project, where TAU reviewed the methods and materials available for built environment MFA in Finland.

In the second topic, i.e. urban mining, TAU focuses on the reuse of building components. Tests are planned for deconstructed components in TAU’s construction laboratory to verify their properties and to compare them to those of virgin products. The work also contributes to standardized testing procedures for secondary components.

TAU is the WP leader for the third topic, i.e. life cycle extension of buildings. A GIS-based analysis on the demolition and renovation patterns is conducted in Vantaa to identify obsolete but transformable buildings types. Then, archetypes of these building types are formed and different development scenarios are designed. Lastly, the life cycle impacts of the scenarios are assessed.

In the fourth topic, i.e. DfD and adaptability, TAU has two distinct focuses. Firstly, the barriers to implementing more flexible housing is reviewed in an interview study of experts. Secondly, possibilities to design buildings for deconstruction is reviewed.

Circular Economy in Building Construction in Tampere, Finland: Buildings as Material Banks, Current Recycling Possibilities, Future Steering Instruments

This poster presents the advances achieved in the research project 'Future Circular Economy Hubs in Finland' (CircHubs) pertaining to the circularity of building construction in the City of Tampere. The research entails three separate entities: (1) a material flow analysis of built and demolished buildings in Tampere between 2000 and 2018, (2) a literature review of the current recycling possibilities, and (3) a review of possible future steering instruments and a proposal of criteria for selected instruments.

The poster presents the first and the third items in detail. The material flow analysis was conducted in GIS and it is based on the building and dwelling registers in Tampere. Among other things, it presents an overview of the volume and development of activities by building type, and zooms geographically into identified areas of building 'replacement', i.e. areas where both demolition and building construction to take place, to understand the drivers of demolition and the nature of the materials pertaining to both activities better.

The development of the future steering instruments is based on reviewing the current Finnish literature regarding steering instruments for circular economy and low carbon construction. In addition to identifying existing instruments, some new instruments are proposed, which have not been considered in this context yet. The work entails a steering theoretical discussion on the instruments' limits and possibilities. Tentative criteria are proposed for given instruments for future development.

The work was conducted in EcoFellows Ltd. The authors of the poster are Satu Huuhka and Mario Kolkwitz. Jussi Lahti also contributed to the work in the project. Most of the results have been published in Finnish only, so the authors would welcome the chance to disseminate in English via this poster.

Architectural window design and energy efficiency: Impacts on heating, cooling and lighting needs in Finnish climates

The building sector constitutes a significant share of global energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Despite improving technology and materials, the foundation of successful energy design lies in architectural design decisions. Windows are one architectural design issue that is a key factor in both energy efficiency and functionality. This research utilized dynamic building simulations to study the direct and combined energy impacts of window related architectural design through the following main variables’ effect on heating, cooling, and lighting need: window area, proportions, horizontal position, external shading, glazing properties, and adjacent room proportions. Four solar orientations and three climatically different Finnish locations were included as context variables.
Window energy efficiency in the studied cases was found to be primarily about controlling solar heat gain. Geographic location changed not only energy consumption directly, but also the individual variables’ impact on it and each other. The results indicate that cooling can be a significant factor even in cold climates, and that energy efficiency should always be evaluated using local weather data as well as sufficient design detail. Most properties affected each other significantly, highlighting a need for a comprehensive approach in both research and design practice and allowing evaluating previous studies comprising fewer variables.

A study on main architectural and structural design considerations of contemporary supertall buildings

The design of supertall buildings (300m+) involves many professionals from several disciplines. The need for coordination among numerous experts, increases complexity of the entire process, which is typically conducted under the leadership of the architect, or sometimes the contractor. Consequently, the architects designing supertall buildings must be aware of architectural and structural design considerations and their interrelations. In this paper, the main architectural design considerations and structural system details of supertall buildings are studied; these include 93 completed or under construction buildings from the 1980s onwards. This study analyses the contemporary trends in main architectural and structural design considerations and corresponding interrelations. In addition, more inclusive and consistent classifications of structural system, building form, and core planning are proposed. The comparison between design considerations over the new proposed classifications is intended to aid and direct architects in the planning and development of supertall building projects as a basic guideline.

Emotional diners and rational eaters: Constructing the urban lunch experience

Lunch is an urban phenomenon relatable to people of all age groups. Nationally-legislated-free lunches for children at day-care, schools, universities and at workplace canteens have a long history in the Finnish welfare society. In this article, the meaning-making of having lunch is shown to be mainly – but not solely – rational, and the sensory and emotional information received from the environment is verbally and rationally interpreted by the interviewees. In comparison, local food events are experiential and embodied in terms of the senses. It is asked whether there are common elements between those two contexts of eating and if some of the findings from the experiential side of eating might be applied to everyday eating occasions, thus contributing to urban conviviality.

Potential of space zoning for energy efficiency through utilization efficiency

Energy efficiency improvements for buildings are required globally to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Energy efficiency is typically calculated in relation to building size (kWh/m2a), which ignores utilization. A utilization perspective entails a paradox in terms of energy efficiency: When utilization increases, so does energy consumption, encouraging minimizing the use of buildings. This paper advocates the use of a utilization efficiency indicator to reveal the impact of building use on energy efficiency. As a concrete design strategy, this paper explores the energy efficiency impact of space zoning, in this context meaning grouping rooms with similar utilization to optimize building systems. To this end, multiple whole building simulations on different utilization variants have been conducted. The results show that such design can improve concrete energy efficiency through more efficient utilization. Simultaneously, the importance of proper space zoning and utilization is highlighted, as otherwise simply increasing usage can also have a negative energy efficiency impact. This study raised the need for systematic utilization design to be included throughout the design process.

Re-centring peripheries along ring roads under a smart growth agenda: case studies of Espoo Innovation Garden and Vantaa Aviapolis in Finland

The study expands on the recent cluster-oriented smart growth vision in Greater Helsinki, Finland, and examines with two case studies the pertinent locational factor and locality-specific issues. The contemporary regional development tendencies of smart clustering have reframed place-making schemes with an aim of placing large concentrations of business activities on the periphery. The case studies of Espoo Innovation Garden and Vantaa Aviapolis draw on descriptive before-and-after analysis over a defined timeframe. The study addresses the formation and transformation of the spatial structure and its relative and relational qualities on an aggregated scale. It demonstrates the potential, challenges, tools, and strategies of the operating smart growth agenda generating spatial-economic competitiveness and attractiveness factors in these particular projects. The findings explain how the locational factor along ring roads parallel with the land-use management and former model of spatial and economic concentration and centralization are hampering the restructuring of new urban centralities.

La oportunidad del afuera / The Opportunity of the Outside

When in an open field, Jaume Plensa has finally the possibility of installing a sculptural piece in the heart of Madrid, he does so in the form of a white, great height infant head named Julia: "I think it was essential to introduce tenderness in the public space"(1). The expression of the sculpture distills tranquility and harmony from its feminine, light and ephemeral condition, a new monumentality that perhaps introduces a legitimate collective aspiration: the reorganization of the current conditions of exteriority.

Stakeholders’ Interests in Developing an Energy Ecosystem for the Superblock – Case Hiedanranta

Policy objectives aimed toward zero-energy buildings call for the utilization of building-integrated renewable energy and distributed energy resources (DER). To enhance the utilization of DER, previous literature proposed the concept of an integrated community energy system (ICES). This research suggested using superblocks (units of multiple urban blocks) to define geographical limits, social contexts, and possibly common administrations for ICESs along with other living- and sustainability-related activities in an urban context. Through interviews with key stakeholders and an analysis, this research investigates the applicability of the superblock-ICES as a way of reaching the low-carbon objectives in the Hiedanranta brownfield development project in the city of Tampere, Finland. This research confirms that the driving forces of community-based solutions are economic benefits, technical development, and objectives of sustainability, and reveals or confirms that social acceptability, missing planning practices, economic risk, and missing or hindering legislation are the main issues or barriers of superblock-ICESs. For a wider adoption of superblock-ICESs, this research suggests cross-disciplinary piloting, together with developing planning practices and simulation tools. In Finland, legislative reforms are needed to remove the barriers and clarify issues related to security, reliability, customer protection, and public interest in governing a locally and collectively owned energy system.

Looking Up: Imagining a Vertical Architecture

Densification is a much-used concept in urban planning in Finland today. Big cities are dealing with a growing population, and a reasonable solution to housing needs seems to be infill construction. Along with the demand for density comes a discussion about vertical building and the role of tall buildings in the city skyline and the townscape. Today’s discussion is updating a similar discussion from the early decades of the 20th century, when the future seemed vertical in many urban planners’ visions, on both sides of the Atlantic. In this article, two such visions from the 1920s are re-visited: Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier’s famous plan for the centre of Paris and Finnish-American architect Eliel Saarinen’s plan for the lakefront of Chicago. These plans reflected a contemporary belief in technological advancement and showed a master planner attitude with a focus on the whole urban environment. Both planners were also looking upward, although seeing the possibilities of a vertically constructed city somewhat differently. In spite of their forward-reaching visionary qualities, both plans remained on paper, depicting a possible future that is now looked at as an alternate past. These visions and discussions of the previous century could still offer a comprehensive view for the contemporary discussion on urban density and one of its results: the vertical city. Many of the questions that should be answered when increasing densities in today’s cities already had their beginnings in the visions that the 20th century architects offered for the future.

Urban Planning in the Post-Zoning Era: From Hierarchy to Self-Organization in the Reform of the Finnish Land Use and Building Act

Encountering cities as complex systems has been pictured as both an intellectual challenge and an urge to reconceptualise planning practices accordingly. Statutory planning in Finland, like in many other European countries, is built on the principles of hierarchical three-level zoning and area reservation codes. The zoning system reflects two historical tasks: the industrialising society’s need to separate uses and the post-war desire for hierarchical administrative structures. Both these demands are rapidly losing their importance. The article focuses on current urban planning practices and planning rules, discussing their limitations to cope with urban complexity and self-organised dynamics, and aiming to develop new rules that could potentially turn complexity into an asset. Evolving digital technologies provide completely new opportunities for developing urban planning into a more transparent and interactive tool. In this framework, we set out to study the development potentials of planning rules in Finland, where the drafting of a new Land Use and Building Act is currently underway calling for a reassessment of the operative role of the planning system.

From Obscurity to Heritage: Canonisation of the Nordic Wooden Town

Art historian Juan Pablo Bonta has presented a nine-step model for analysing how the interpretation of architectural oeuvres becomes canonised. We suggest that in terms of the built heritage, canonisation and heritagisation are essentially the same process, so Bonta’s model can be used for analysing heritagisation processes. This article testifies to this assumption by examining how the interpretation of historic Nordic wooden towns became stabilised in Finland. The concept was introduced in the 1960s to describe the Nordic urban heritage that was threatened by massive town development projects. The identification of the heritage category enabled the preservation of some remaining wooden districts. Examining this process allows us to discuss the role of expertise in the building preservation. In the case of wooden towns, experts’ early recognition was a crucial precondition for the preservation of the heritage, which enabled novel generations to form a living relationship with it. Seen through the experts’ writings, the heritagisation process of the wooden towns also reflect the expanding scope of the built heritage discipline. Based on our findings, the canonisation model is applicable not only to the individual oevres, as Bonta addresses, but also to broader built environments and, more conceptually, to heritage categories.

Building Conservation and the Circular Economy: A Theoretical Consideration

Purpose
The purpose of this conceptual paper is to discuss the relation between building conservation and circular economy (CE), which are often erroneously seen as inherently contradictory to one another.

Design / methodology / approach
The work draws from a comparative approach. The paper reviews a body of literature on architectural conservation and CE to establish an understanding on the state-of-the-art for both disciplines separately. Then, the relation between thereof is developed through a theoretical discourse.

Findings
Both architectural conservation and CE aim at safeguarding value, although they define ‘value’ differently. Fabric-focused conservation and CE favor minimal intervention to material, albeit they arrive at this conclusion from different bases. Consequently, both approaches struggle with the low cost of virgin resource extraction and waste production and the high cost of human labor in contemporary Western societies. CE could be harnessed for building conservation by adopting its vocabulary and methodology, such as life cycle assessment and material flow analysis. Transitioning towards CE can help increase the preservation of built heritage while redefining what is meant by ‘heritage’ and ‘waste’.

Originality / value
Prior to this paper, there have been no articles addressing the relationship of the concepts explicitly and to this extent. The paper provides a theoretical basis for further discourse and outlines some implications of CE for the construction and built heritage disciplines.

Tulevaisuuskatsaus eräiden maiden alueidenkäytön suunnittelujärjestelmiin

Tulevaisuuskatsaus tarkastelee lakitekstien ja tutkimuskirjallisuuden nojalla kahdeksan eurooppalaisen maan suunnittelujärjestelmiä: Englanti, Hollanti, Norja, Ranska, Ruotsi, Saksa, Skotlanti ja Tanska. Raporttia varten on tehty myös kansainvälisen asiantuntijakysely.
Katsauksen tarkoituksena on muodostaa käsitys näiden Suomen kannalta relevanttien Euroopan maiden suunnittelujärjestelmien kehityksestä, lähitulevaisuuden muutoksista ja tunnistetuista muutostarpeista. Katsaus hahmottaa ja vertailee muutosten suuntaa näissä maissa ja nostaa esille olennaisimmat kiinnostavat opit Suomen kannalta. Tavoitteena on tukea meneillään olevaa maankäyttö- ja rakennuslain uudistusta ja Suomen suunnittelujärjestelmän kehitystyötä.
Maakuvauksissa on pyritty vertailtavuuteen, vaikkakaan suunnittelukulttuuriltaan ja juridiselta perinteeltään erilaisia maita ei ole mahdollista puristaa yhteen muottiin. Kaikista maista on nostettu esille 1) hallinnan tehtävä, rakenne ja ohjaustasot, 2) aikajana lainsäädännön viimeaikaisista muutoksista, 3) kaavoitus- menettelyn nykytilanne, 4) tunnistetut suunnittelujärjestelmän ja säädösten uudistustarpeet, 5) keskeiset muutostekijät ja 6) yhteenveto Suomen kannalta. Ranskan suunnittelujärjestelmästä ja sen muutoksesta
on kirjoitettu muita maita perusteellisemmin, koska Ranskan järjestelmä on kiinnostava mutta Suomessa suhteellisen huonosti tunnettu.
Tulevaisuuskatsauksen yhteenvedossa pohditaan sitä, missä Suomi on ja voisi olla edelläkävijä maankäytön suunnittelussa ja sen sääntelyssä. Näitä mahdollisuuksia on erityisesti kaupunkiseutujen tunnistamisessa suunnittelujärjestelmän toimijoina, kaavoituksen asiakaslähtöisyydessä ja digitalisaatiossa sekä ilmastonmuutokseen varautumisen ja sen hillinnän ymmärtämisessä maankäytön ja kaupunkiprosessien ajurina. Ilmastokysymyksen sosiaalinen ulottuvuus on syytä hahmottaa osana suunnittelupolitiikkaa.

Endocrine disruption and commensal bacteria alteration associated with gaseous and soil PAH contamination among daycare children

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are priority environmental pollutants that cause adverse health effects. PAHs belong to endocrine signaling disruptors to which children are sensitive to. Recent evidence suggests that PAH pollution alters the abundance of environmental bacteria that is associated with health outcomes. The alteration of environmental and commensal microbiota by PAH pollution has never been connected to endocrine signaling pathways. To estimate the risk of endocrine disruption in daycare children, we measured PAHs from soil and air of eleven urban daycare centres in Finland. We analyzed daycare yards' soil and children's gut and skin bacterial communities with 16S rRNA gene metabarcoding and used Kyoto Encyclopaedia of Genes and Genomes database to categorize endocrine signaling pathways. We also assessed the PAH hazard to children's health based on the current risk assesments. We observed associations between signaling pathways in endocrine system and gaseous PAH levels in ambient air. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor and adipocytokine signaling pathway decreased with higher chrysene concentration in the air. Soil PAH contamination was associated with altered Actinobacteria, Bacteoridetes and Proteobacteria communities on children's skin and in daycare yard soil. However, adjusted genera were not the same in soil and on skin, with the exception of Mycobacterium that was associated with higher PAH concentrations both in soil and on the skin. Even though fluoranhtene levels were above the current threshold values, total PAHs were below safety threshold values and based on current risk assessments there is a minor risk for child health. Our findings indicate that PAH concentrations that are considered safe may interfere with endocrine signaling by commensal microbiota and alter both environmental and commensal bacterial communities. The imbalance in human microbiota and the decrease in signaling pathways may contribute to emerging public health problems, including inflammatory disorders, obesity and diabetes. Therefore, the optimal risk assessments of PAHs and theoretically also other contaminants shaping commensal microbiota may need to take into account the possibility of the disruption of endocrine signaling pathways.

From Marginal to Mainstream? Analysing Translations between the Collaborative Housing Niche and the Established Housing Sector in Finland

This paper focuses on the interaction between collaborative housing projects and the established housing sector. While collaborative housing is increasingly seen as a promising housing model, its impact on the wider housing system has remained under researched. This paper traces translations between the two domains. Drawing on the transition theory, it views collaborative housing as a grassroots niche challenging the culture, structures, and practices of the dominant housing system. The evidence from three Finnish cases shows that while the established housing sector may adopt niche ideas and move the goal posts, structural and practical barriers remain and make the diffusion of collaborative housing difficult.

Suurten puurakenteiden arkkitehtoniset ominaisuudet

Tämän tutkimuksen lähtökohtana on ollut tarkastella suomalaista suurten puurakenteiden tilannetta suhteessa vastaavaan ulkomaiseen puurakentamiseen. Tämä on tärkeää, koska puurakentaminen on lisääntynyt merkittavästi viime vuosikymmenen aikana. Monet puurakennushankkeet, kuten uudet puukaupunkialueet, konserttitalot, koulut, päiväkodit, toimisto- ja asuinrakennukset, osoittavat, että puuta osataan Suomessa hyödyntää jo seka rakennusteknisesti että arkkitehtonisesti ansiokkaasti. Selvästi parannettavaa on kuitenkin hallirakennuksissa ja niiden arkkitehtonisessa muodonannossa. Verrattuna moniin ulkomaisiin puurakenteisiin halleihin suomalaiset toteutukset vaikuttavat usein teollisuus- tai varastohalleilta. Näistä lähtökohdista tutkimuksen tavoitteeksi muotoutui sen selvittäminen, mitkä tekijät vaikuttavat suurten puurakenteiden arkkitehtoniseen muodonantoon.

Tutkimus on luonteeltaan käytäntöä painottava, mikä tarkoittaa yleistäen sitä, että arkkitehti pyrkii tutkimuksen keinoin reflektoimaan omaa käytäntöään, jäsentämään sitä teoreettisesti ja palaamaan tutkimuksen lopussa takaisin käytäntöön. Tutkimus eteni suurten puurakennejärjestelmien luokituksen ja puurakenteiden historiallisen katsauksen jälkeen teoreettiseen pohdintaan suurten puurakenteiden arkkitehtonisen muodon ominaisuuksista. Näitä ominaisuuksia käytettiin apuna empiirisessä tutkimusvaiheessa, jossa kohteena olivat eräät, lähinnä ulkomaiset puurakenteiset kohteet. Lopuksi näiden kaikkien perustalta päädyttiin konkreettiseen suunnitelmaan, jossa kokeiltiin, miten suuria puurakenteita voidaan käyttää arkkitehtonisen ilmaisun välineenä.

Historiallisessa katsauksessa tuotiin esiin, kuinka pitkä perinne puurakenteiden käytöllä esimerkiksi Euroopassa on ja kuinka rakennustekninen kehitys on kunakin aikakautena heijastunut puurakenteiden arkkitehtoniseen ilmaisuun. Puurakennejärjestelmät ryhmiteltiin yhdeksään ryhmään: (1) palkkeihin ja pilareihin, (2) yhdistettyihin palkkeihin, (3) sauvarakenteisiin, (4) ristikkorakenteisiin, (5) kehiin ja kaariin, (6) avaruusristikoihin, (7) kupoleihin, (8) kuorirakenteisiin sekä (9) riippurakenteisiin ja ketjutettuihin rakenteisiin. Eri järjestelmille todettiin olevan luontaista tietyt massan, poikkileikkauksen ja pohjan muodot.

Puurakenteiden arkkitehtonisen muodon ominaisuuksia tutkittiin arkkitehtonisen tilan, massan ja pinnan kannalta. Tarkasteltavaksi tulivat muodon kokoonpano, muodon hahmo, muodon suhteet, pinnan kudos, muodon havaittavuus ja visuaalinen tasapaino. Arkkitehtonisia muodon ominaisuuksia tarkasteltiin myös merkittävien ulkomaisten puurakennuskohteiden avulla. Kohteita analysoitiin ja niiden suunnittelijoita haastateltiin. Tarkastelukohteiden havainnoinnit ja suunnittelijoiden haastattelut osoittivat, että ne arkkitehtonisen muodon ominaisuudet, joita teoriaosuudessa selvitettiin, toteutuivat näissä kohteissa monenlaisina ja vakuuttavina variaatioina. Haastattelujen perusteella voidaan olettaa, että muodon ominaisuuksien tietoisella käsittelyllä voidaan hallita suurten puurakenteiden arkkitehtonisia muodonannon perusteita entistä paremmin, mikä on välttämätöntä niiden arkkitehtonisen laadun kehittämiseksi.

Näistä teoreettisista pohdinnoista ja empiirisistä havainnoista tutkimus eteni lopulta takaisin suunnittelukäytäntöön. Tavoitteena oli palauttaa tutkimuksen aikana tuotettu tieto takaisin käytäntöön. Käytäntöä edustaa tässä teoreettinen suunnittelutilanne. Suunnittelun kohteena oli puurakenteinen uimahalli. Suunnitteluprosessi osoitti, ettei suunnittelu voi edetä systemaattisesti muodon ominaisuudesta toiseen, vaan työ edellyttää jokaisen yksittäisen muodon ominaisuuden kohdalla pohdintaa tämän vaikutuksista kohteen muihin ominaisuuksiin. Suunnittelu -luovana prosessina- pysyy näiltä osin tunnustelevana ja vaatii aina myös intuitiivista otetta.

Tässä tutkimuksessa on tarkasteltu myös tutkimuksen ajanmukaisuutta suhteessa aineiston- keruuhetkeen (2003-2006) ja nykyhetkeen. Tämän tarkastelun tulos on, että tutkimus on edelleen tärkeä ja käyttökelpoinen Suomessa, mikä lisää työn merkittävyyttä. Tutkimus on suunnattu ensisijaisesti suunnittelijoille Suomessa, mutta ilmeistä on, etta tässä työssä esitettyjä tai siitä sovellettavia ajatuksia on mahdollista käyttää vuorovaikutuksessa tilaajan, rakennuttajan, käyttäjän, muiden suunnittelijoiden, viranomaisten tai rakentajan kanssa.

Urbanismi voimavarana. Kaupungistumisen näkymiä provinssissa.

Kaupungistuminen on maailmanlaajuinen vahva megatrendi, joka liitetään ilmiönä useimmiten suurkaupunkeihin. Helposti unohtuu urbanisaation hennompi prosessi, joka muokkaa pienempiä kaupunkeja ja yhdyskuntia sekä näitä ympäröivää maaseutua. Vaikka tämän tyyppinen muutos ei ole määrällisesti tarkasteltuna yhtä kiinnostava, se avaa tärkeitä näkökulmia yhdyskuntien laadulliseen muutokseen ja sen hallintaan.

Biotalous ja digitalisaatio ovat esimerkkejä vahvistuvista muutosajureista. Ne tulevat muokkaamaan kaupunkielämää, -taloutta, -tilaa ja -rakennetta tavoilla, joita tunnemme toistaiseksi huonosti. On myös mahdollista, että keskittyminen suurille kaupunkiseuduille laukaisee vastaliikkeen, jossa arvostetaan puhtautta, hiljaisuutta ja turvallisuutta. Tällaisia laatuja haetaan yleensä pienemmistä yhdyskunnista.

Tarkastelemme Etelä-Pohjanmaan yhdyskuntakehityksen muutosnäkymiä eri mittakaavoissa. Alavudella on mahdollisuuksia omaperäiseen pikkukaupunkiurbanismiin, jota tarvitaan vastapainoksi kaupan ja liikenteen aiheuttamille yhdyskuntarakenteen muutoksille. Suomalaisittain keskikokoinen Seinäjoki pyrkii isojen keskusten joukkoon kaupunkistrategialla, joka konkretisoituu kunnianhimoisina keskustauudistuksina. Tulevaisuudessa maaseutu ja kaupunki voidaan limittää myös monitasoisesti, tavalla, joka rikastaa ”Ruokaprovinssin” pääkaupunkiseutua aivan uusilla laatumääreillä.

Urbanisaatiotrendien, paikallisen potentiaalin ja yllättävien kehityskulkujen yhdistelmä on vaikea pala yhdyskuntasuunnittelulle. Valmiin lopputilanteen sijaan suunnittelussa on kyettävä määrittämään sopivan väljät kehykset, joissa halutut laatutekijät voivat toteutua. Tätä voi nimittää vaikkapa robustiksi suunnitteluksi.

Greening of Daycare Yards with Biodiverse Materials Affords Well-Being, Play and Environmental Relationships

Nature contacts are recognized as positively contributing to humans’ health and well-being. Although there have been projects to green daycare or schoolyards, yard greening and microbial biodiversity have never been studied simultaneously. We asked whether simultaneously increasing biodiversity exposure and greening urban daycare yards affects 3–5 years-old children’s physical activity and play, their environmental relationships, and their perceived well-being. For transforming six daycare yards in Finland, we used a forest floor with high biodiversity, sod, peat blocks, and planters for vegetable and flower growing. We used qualitative interview and survey-based data collected from the daycare personnel and parents to analyze how green yards encourage children’s engagement with their everyday life-worlds. We identified the functional possibilities provided by the yards and the dynamic aspects related to the greening. Green, biodiverse yards were considered safe, and inspired children’s play, diversified their activities, and increased physical activity. The greenery offered embodied experiences of nature and provided the children with multi-sensory exploration and diverse learning situations. The dynamic and emotional ways of engaging with the natural environment increased their well-being. The activities related to caring for the yards and exploring them promoted the development of environmental relationships. The results can be used for designing health-enhancing yards.

Void conditions and potential for mould growth for insulated and uninsulated suspended timber ground floors

Purpose

Millions of properties have suspended timber ground floors globally, with around ten million in the UK alone. However, it is unknown what the floor void conditions are, nor the effect of insulating such floors. Upgrading floors changes the void conditions, which might increase or decrease moisture build-up and mould and fungal growth. The purpose of this paper is to provide a review of the current global evidence and present the results of in situ monitoring of 15 UK floor voids.

Design/methodology/approach

An extensive literature review on the moisture behaviour in both uninsulated and insulated suspended timber crawl spaces is supplemented with primary data of a monitoring campaign during different periods between 2012 and 2015. Air temperature and relative humidity sensors were placed in different floor void locations. Where possible, crawl spaces were visually inspected.

Findings

Comparison of void conditions to mould growth thresholds highlights that a large number of monitored floor voids might exceed the critical ranges for mould growth, leading to potential occupant health impacts if mould spores transfer into living spaces above. A direct comparison could not be made between insulated and uninsulated floors in the sample due to non-random sampling and because the insulated floors included historically damp floors. The study also highlighted that long-term monitoring over all seasons and high-resolution monitoring and inspection are required; conditions in one location are not representative of conditions in other locations.

Originality/value

This study presents the largest UK sample of monitored floors, evaluated using a review of current evidence and comparison with literature thresholds.

Built environment determinants of pedestrians’ and bicyclists’ route choices on commute trips: Applying a new grid-based method for measuring the built environment along the route

To better understand the role of the built environment in route choices among pedestrians and bicyclists, this study explores the built environment distribution along commute routes in two neighbourhoods in Tampere, Finland. A new grid-based method is developed to enable a more sophisticated analysis of the built environment along the route. The data consist of 73 commute routes collected with the Sports Tracker® smartphone application, of which 18 are made by foot and 55 by bicycle. To find the most relevant spatial scale, the values of each built environment variable are calculated with five buffer sizes for each cell of the grid covering the research area. Five statistics describing the distribution of the built environmental variables along each shortest and actual route are then calculated and compared. The results show that besides determining whether a significant association is found, different spatial scales for the analysis produce dissimilar findings in strength and even the direction of the correlations found. The most significant associations are found mainly with the smallest buffer (15m). Of the five built environment statistics calculated, the mean value of most built environmental variables had the most consistent correlation with route choice. Also, standard deviation and the third quartile of several built environmental variables along the routes correlate with route choice. The most significant associations with route choice are found with intersection density, institutional land use, slope, and age of buildings.

El origen del ‘sueño’ de la arquitectura de cristal: Una aproximación

The history of glass architecture has been animated by a ‘dream’, stimulated by the particular interaction properties of this material with light. The article approaches to the genesis of that dream and its first manifestations, in the form of legends about fantastic glass buildings, transcribed in sacred or literary texts. It refers also to the architectures in which it has been materialized and some of the architects it has inspired. We conclude that the survival of this dream in time is due to the capacity granted to glass as a way to access indistinctly to ‘anagogies’ (elevation and alienation of the soul by the contemplation of ‘divine’ things), whether religious or secular.

Architectural potential of deconstruction and reuse in declining mass housing estates

In Western Europe, many large housing estates have experienced spirals of intertwined physical and social decline. Such estates have wound up at the bottom of the housing hierarchy, which is manifested as high turnovers and vacancies. This qualitative multi-case study contributes to the research on the sustainable management of declining neighbourhoods’ housing stocks. The study learns from four individual cases in which vacancies were tackled with an extreme architectural transformation. In the investigated cases, large-panel buildings were partially deconstructed and renovated, and the reclaimed concrete panels were reused for new construction nearby. The approach integrates demolition, renovation and new construction − the three characteristic building stock management strategies in disadvantaged neighbourhoods. The cases are located in Sweden (Gothenburg, 1984), the Netherlands (Middelburg, 1986), Germany (Berlin, 2004) and Finland (Raahe, 2010). Deconstruction was the landlords’ way to manage their assets in the face of vacancies and social problems in relatively young, unamortized buildings. The projects proved technically feasible, yet they have been criticised for their economic and social implications. Nonetheless, the approach seems to have contributed to extending the life cycles of the buildings in question, and it has the potential to improve the quality of life in large housing estates.

Re-imaginando el espacio público en los intersticios del vacío y el abandonon en las ciudades latinoamericanas

Esta ponencia analiza el proyecto de Huerto Tlatelolco dentro de los distintos
discursos sobre el espacio público y como parte de un estudio que analiza 24 proyectos de apropiaciones temporales de espacios urbanos vacíos o abandonados en siete países latinoamericanos. El objetivo del trabajo es entender cómo estas apropiaciones están creando nuevos tipos de espacios públicos y oportunidades sociales para los ciudadanos y sus comunidades. Con base en un estudio cualitativo, se analiza cómo estos espacios urbanos son física y socialmente transformados en espacios vitales abiertos al público, ilustrando cómo activistas crean un espacio público incluyente y diferente.

Teaching Archaeological Heritage Management: Towards a Change in Paradigms

The concept of archaeological heritage management (AHM) has been key to
wider archaeological research and preservation agendas for some decades.
Many universities and other education providers now offer what is best
termed heritage management education (HME) in various forms. The
emphasis is commonly on archaeological aspects of heritage in a broad
sense and different terms are often interchangeable in practice. In an
innovative working-conference held in Tampere, Finland, we initiated a
debate on what the components of AHM as a course or curriculum should
include. We brought together international specialists and discussed
connected questions around policy, practice, research and
teaching/training, at local, national, transnational and World Heritage
levels. In this article we take the Tampere discussions further,
focusing especially on the meaning, necessity, implications and
prerequisites of interdisciplinary HME. We offer our thoughts on
developing HME that reflects the contemporary aspects and needs of
heritage and its management.

La función de la función / The Function of Function

What are the reasons for the discredit of functionalism in architecture? What kind of mutations has the term 'function' undergone? What meaning has it acquired from modernity to present? What has the function of function been? Why do we nowadays say 'use' or 'activity' instead of 'function'? What happened with functionalist architecture? What is the aesthetics of function? And the ethics of function?

Thinking Design: Towards an Architecture of Critical Indeterminacy and Temporal Affectivity

The legacy of Platonic thought and education in the West has led to a narrowing of what we call “thinking.” In particular, this legacy has led to modes of thinking that overvalue linear logic, objective facts, and universal constants, overlooking those human capacities whose results are difficult to measure because they cannot be quantified. However, architecture is a discipline that necessarily depends upon understanding those experiences that are temporal, affective, ephemeral, relational, embedded, lived, and felt. Architectural thinking overcomes scientific rationalism only through the realization that architectural significance can be found also in the indeterminacy of poetic understanding, which “communicates” via analogical language—the language of temporal affectivity.

This study aims to better understand creative thinking both generally and in the context of architecture, focusing on specific questions about the self-imposed limits that are typically placed upon what we call “thinking” and how to better stimulate the agilities of creative thought in architecture. In order to be congruent with the critique of a pervasive mathematical syntax, the methods and results of study strive to remain poetic in nature; in other words, this is a theoretical exercise whose insights are measured rhetorically through the correlation of various pieces of “circumstantial evidence” structured by an argument that succeeds or fails through its persuasive force alone. This evidence is built from anecdotes, examples and arguments, and structured through conversations with the thinking of philosophy and architecture; of particular importance in this study are philosophers Martin Heidegger, Gilles Delueze, and Gilbert Simondon, and the Finnish architect Reima Pietilä.

This is an argument for designing more supple, sensitive, and resilient modalities of thinking: thinking that is not solely aimed at creating better buildings, but also at carving out new areas of influence for architectural thinking in society. It is an argument that contends that simplistic absolutism in architectural movements and trends will only continue to promote fallacies about education, thinking, and the measures of architectural worth. It is an argument that believes architects must prioritize development of those critical, non-instrumental skills that sometimes the profession even forgets that it needs. It is an argument that believes that this process begins through an intensive familiarization and attunement to the affective-poetic syntax of temporal encounter, becomes possible when “creators” are nimble, inclusive, optimistic, and expansive, and can be subsumed in the maelstrom of problem and prospect—the design process—and leads to a temporal-material-spatial language of architecture that is most purely and powerfully architecture.

'Los muertos que vos matáis gozan de buena salud": Crítica a la crítica Postmoderna del Funcionalismo

Modern functionalist culture is indebted to the dialectic function-form, rooted in Western thought, from its classical origins to our days. The article analyzes the reasons for the crisis of this tradition in architecture, beginning in the 1930s and especially departing from Postmodernism; when part of the academic establishment, alerts about the necessity of a new discourse that would allow the "advance" of architecture. 1965 Th. W. Adorno’s reflections on functionalism are taken as the cornerstone, not only to review and criticize that historical moment, but also some aspects of our current situation. From Adorno’s thought we can conclude that the functional discourse could "enjoy good health" if we act in accordance with what he understands as the “autonomy” in architecture.

The Work of the Studio Aalto Collaborators: Practice, Craft and Theory

In 1954 Alvar Aalto built a new and larger studio building close to his existing combined home and studio in Munkkiniemi in Helsinki. The current study complements previous studies on the work produced at the so-called Studio Aalto over the next two decades by stressing its collective dimension and examining how in turn it was appropriated by the Studio collaborators.

This study is a combination of the history and theory of architecture and is structured thematically along three lines: practice, craft, and theory. The thesis as a whole is divided into 2 parts. Part I introduces and connects the work of the Studio with the work made independently by its members, a group of architects which has so far remained relatively unknown. A central question is thus whether these architects could continue the architectural profession at the level set out by the Studio. Part II concentrates on three case studies by members of the Studio: Jaakko Kontio (and Kalle Räike’s) Lappeenranta University of Technology (1969-1975); Kaarlo Leppänen’s Valkeakoski Cultural and Administrative Centre (1966-1973); Eric Adlercreutz (and Nils-Hinrik Aschan’s) Jägarbacken Housing in Ekenäs (1968-1973).

The point of view of practice shows the relationship between the architecture and the circumstances, allowing for the problematization of the changes associated with the emergence of a welfare state in post-war Finland. Kontio’s experience in university campus design is examined by considering the dialogues established with other people involved in the project. The point of view of craft emphasizes the action of successive generations upon the same material. Aalto’s sense of tradition provoked a revision within the Modern Movement, but also contributed to the isolation of the Studio within Finnish architecture circles in the late 1960s. To contrapose the progressivist bias at that time, Leppänen’s work is presented through a combination of technological and cultural approaches. In turn, theory is that part of architecture that can be discussed through ideas. The reconstitution of Adlercreutz’s Pattern Language studies, based on those of Christopher Alexander, establishes a triangulation that clarifies the Studio’s systematic and open method, thus helping to challenge the Studio’s reputation for neglecting theory. The comparisons show that each of the collaborators combined something of their experience with Aalto with their own individual experiences, and used this combined experience, moreover, to face partly new problems. Taken bidirectionally, the comparisons encourage a reconsideration of Aalto’s work and support my broader effort to confirm the continuity of architecture.

Adaptability of mass housing: Size modifications of flats as a response to segregation

Purpose

When dwellings fail to respond to residents' needs, housing will suffer from segregation and buildings will possibly be demolished ahead of their time. This paper focuses on the lack of variation in the sizes of dwellings as a factor in residential segregation. It examines this issue in the context of Finnish mass housing built in the 1960s and 1970s. The aim of the article is to review how mass housing layouts can be adapted to produce the currently absent flat sizes.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper operates at the intersection of human geography, building stock research and adaptability research. First, statistical data is utilised to investigate how dwellings and households of different sizes are distributed over the Finnish housing stock. Secondly, the building layouts of mass housing are examined in detail. Thirdly, the potential that flats in mass housing have for size modification is reviewed.

Findings

There is a disparity of available dwelling sizes between different housing types, and statistics show that the proportion of large households has decreased significantly in blocks of flats over the last decades. The lack of large dwellings in mass housing may contribute as one factor to the segregation of the neighbourhoods built in the 1960s and 1970s. The findings show how the variation of apartment sizes can be increased in mass housing.

Originality/value

The housing stock is rarely examined in detail in segregation research, even though it is a major determinant for a city’s social structure. This paper argues that to address segregation sustainably, it is necessary to understand the housing stock better and to view it as an adaptable asset.

Condensation at the exterior surface of windows

New energy efficient windows have a higher risk for outdoor air vapour condensing to their exterior surface, when compared to older windows with lower thermal resistance. This external condensation can reduce visibility through the window, decrease owner satisfaction and affect the behaviour of window buyers and sellers. The purpose of this study was to analyse the impact of window U-value and other factors on the occurrence of external condensation. A combined heat and moisture transfer model was created and used for the calculations. According to the results, the duration and amount of external condensation are projected to increase in the future due to lower window U-values and climate change. Exterior surface emissivity, external shadings and building location had a big impact on the amount of yearly condensation hours, while window orientation and solar absorption coefficient had a smaller impact. There was also an interesting power-law-type correlation between yearly condensation hours and the median effective thickness of the condensation layer. The results help window manufacturers and building designers make more accurate decisions in their future work.

Diversity scales for integrated housing in the multicultural city

“We have to deconstruct both ‘the public interest’ and ‘community’, recognizing that each tends to exclude difference. We must acknowledge that there are multiple publics and that planning in this new multicultural arena, requires a new kind of multicultural literacy” (Sandercock 1998, 30).

Tectonic use of reclaimed timber: Design principles for turning scrap into architecture

Increasing the use of timber has been proposed as one step towards more sustainable architecture and construction. Timber's renewability and the capability to store carbon have dominated this discussion. At the same time, viewpoints related to material efficiency and recycling, equally important aspects to sustainability, have been neglected. Unfortunately, recycling wood can be challenging, and countries that already build a lot with timber tend to rely on incineration at the end of the life cycle. Reusing wood could, however, save emissions from manufacturing new timber and disposing of demolished timber and prolong the time the carbon stays sequestered. Embedded in new architectural ensembles, salvaged components could also transmit the past to the contemporary viewer and thus, result in more evocative architecture.

Barriers preventing reuse in general have been documented in literature, but few solutions have been proposed. The obstacles include, among other things, inconsistent quality and quantity, difficulty of dimensional coordination and negative perception, which are all issues connected to design. This paper employs literature review and design simulation in addressing the challenges of architectural design from reclaimed timber. With the help of literature, the tectonic nature of reclaimed wood material is elaborated in more detail. The design simulation was conducted during a special timber architecture course with the help of 36 students, whose design projects form the empirical research material of the paper. Engaging in a discussion with literature and the research material, the study results in recognizing how reclaimed timber essentially differs from virgin timber and proposes ten design principles for managing the inconsistencies associated with the salvaged material.

The presented discussion demonstrates that reclaimed materials should be considered as materials of their own; they should not be expected to simply comply with conventional construction methods and design practices. Since the salvaged components already exist, their architectural and structural design cannot be differentiated from each other. Therefore, tectonic expression endogenous to reclaimed materials needs to be developed in order to actuate their more widespread reuse. Whereas historical and vernacular construction methods withhold many insights for architectural design from reclaimed timber, contemporary computer-aided design offers novel tools for the execution of these ideas. The remarks of the paper are not only valid in Western contexts, but may be highly relevant for architects working in developing countries.

Observer, expert, or activist: changing roles in design research project

This article discusses ethical issues in an urban development design research study. It is based on an ongoing PhD research project which investigates
questions of urban housing design in socially diverse, multicultural neighbourhoods. Experience from the case discloses ethical responsibilities in design research that concerns researchers’ positions, empirical results, and perceivable effects on the case environment. This article aims to argue for politically informed action that acknowledges ethical responsibilities to the case environment and people living in it as a primary interest in design research.

Spolia revisited and extended: The potential for contemporary architecture

In the fields of archaeology, art history and history, spolia have traditionally been studied as phenomena of the past. Today, the reuse of salvaged construction components and materials is primarily justified by its economic and ecological benefits, while its architectural and experiential qualities are much less discussed, if at all. Therefore, this article has two focuses, one more conceptual, and the other, more practical. Firstly, the article suggests extending the concept of spolia to contemporary architecture and discusses the usefulness of the concept in evaluating experiential values in contemporary constructions that make use of reclaimed parts. Secondly, it evaluates the potential of spoliation as a modern design tool in search of a more complex and historicity-based architectural expression. This potential is examined by defining the requirements for the extended concept, and through analyzing examples of contemporary design. Although the main focus of this article is on contemporary architecture based on old building components, the topic also has obvious implications for heritage management.

Rich & Orderly: The Role of Visual Complexity and Order in Intuitive Preference for Apartment Interiors

Both everyday experience and scientific knowledge have demonstrated the great power of the environment to influence not only our emotions and behaviour but also our well-being and health. There is also reason to believe that intuitive preference exerts a significant influence on choice of apartment. Environmental preferences have been studied widely in both natural and urban contexts as well as in the context of external building styles. However, considering the amount of time that people spend inside buildings, including homes, systematic research on visual preferences for architectural interiors seems to be surprisingly negligible. Therefore, studying architectural characteristics that increase visual preference for apartment interiors has to be considered relevant from the perspective of both the well-being and health of people, and also that of enhancing the quality of apartment stock.

The primary aim of this thesis was to study architectural characteristics that increase the experience of the visual appeal, or pleasantness, of apartment interiors. I have striven to achieve this aim, first by exploring the literature for attributes that may influence visual preference. Based on these findings, I defined several variables that I considered possibly predictive of visual preference for apartment interiors. Finally, the influence of these variables on visual preference for apartment interiors was studied experimentally.

As previous research is scarce on architectural characteristics and their influence on preference in the context of apartment interiors, I ended up searching for characteristics through a broad, interdisciplinary theoretical framework. Two concepts - visual complexity and order - were found to emerge repeatedly from this theoretical framework. In the field of aesthetics, a great number of both theoretical and experimental studies lend support to the assumption that visual aesthetic preference would in one way or another be related to visual complexity and order. Similar results have been obtained in the field of environmental psychology, mainly in the context of outdoor environments; visual elements that promote both exploration and comprehensibility of the environment have been found to increase environmental preference. Besides, several architectural characteristics that can be seen to relate to visual complexity and order are typical of traditional architectural styles, and classical architectural theories emphasize their role in the context of building aesthetics. However, it seems that these concepts have received only minor attention in present-day architectural discourse, research and theory.

Based on the literature, a broad set of architectural variables that were considered to potentially explain visual complexity, order and preference of apartment scenes, was created for use in the experimental part of this thesis. Additionally, a total of forty-three test images - where the architectural variables in question obtained different values - were created for this purpose. In the experiment, 107 medical students, who acted as test subjects, evaluated the images according to their interestingness the term used in this thesis to describe the level of interest they aroused - (an operationalized measure for complexity), spatial organization (an operationalized measure for order) and pleasantness (an operationalized measure for appeal or preference). The relationships between these evaluations and the architectural variables were then analysed by using regression analysis, by comparing the similarities and differences in the evaluations of four subgroups (males, females, participants with prior artistic training and participants without prior art training) and by visually analysing the images and their ratings. In addition, the different affective qualities that might be related to different architectural characteristics were assessed by using the Circumplex model for affective quality attributed to environments created by Russell, Ward and Pratt (1981).

The most important and the most reliable result of this thesis can be considered to be that the ratings for interestingness and spatial organization of apartment interiors were found to predict the ratings for pleasantness. The same finding was perceived within the whole group as well as within each of the four subgroups. This study thus lends support to the finding that has emerged in research from other disciplines: the environment should be both complex and ordered at the same time in order to be pleasant. In addition, certain physical architectural characteristics were found that predicted the majority of variance of the ratings for interestingness (83%) and spatial organization (87.6%). For instance, the total number of outward directions from the room, the amount of detail (the number of black pixels in the binary image) and the surface area of the windows were found to increase the ratings for interestingness in the regression model of the whole group and in that of at least three subgroups. In the same way, the bilateral symmetry of the room was found to increase and the number of aligned element lines to decrease the ratings for spatial organization. Together with the ratings for interestingness and spatial organization, the use of classical proportions and verticality were found to predict the majority (76.6%) of variance in the ratings for pleasantness. However, creating and defining the architectural variables used in this study was challenging, within certain characteristics in particular, and therefore the results concerning these can only be regarded as preliminary. Studying the phenomena perceived in this study further with both different subject groups and architectural variables provides interesting and important research topics for future studies.

Ideoita kaavoituksen sisällön uudistamiseen: Kaavojen merkintöjen ja määräysten kehittäminen (KAMMI-hanke)

The project concerning the designations used in the plans and regulations on the plans (KAMMI) was based on the need to develop the content of the plans at different levels to take the changes in the environment and future needs better into account. As an outcome recommendations are given to develop the spatial planning system in relation to the key steering needs that were identified and the European objectives relating to the harmonisation of the management of planning data (INSPIRE Directive).
The various subsections of the report provide the reasoning for the conclusions at the end. The report starts with a description of the history and current situation of the Finnish spatial planning system. A key part of the project were the so-called stimulus themes through which the main needs for change were to be identified and the core future tasks of spatial planning were to be specified. The reflections on the stimulus themes were mirrored against the development of the spatial planning system as a whole and its contents. In the project it was also considered necessary to construct a view and ideas to renew spatial planning from the perspective of designations and regulations. At the end, various types of designations were developed for the steering of land use by municipalities both on the more general and on quite detailed level.
The work is closely linked to the process of amending the Land Use and Building Act that has been started. It provides a particular perspective to the discussion on the reform of the regional and land use planning system.

Bridging soft and hard – Towards a more coherent understanding of self-organisation within urban complexity research

Cities are becoming increasingly complex in both form and function, while the planning system retains the rational top-down mode – assuming that urbanity is predictable. However, complexity thinking affords a promising perspective on cities as uncertain and dissipative, bottom-up organizing systems.

Emerging from social sciences, the methodology of communicative approaches in urban planning is mainly qualitative, while the origin of complexity thinking is in natural sciences, relying on quantitative methods. In both discourses the concept of self-organisation in particular occurs constantly. Regarding their backgrounds, the approaches in urban planning research typically differ from each other rendering the use of the concept unclear and thereby limiting its overall applicability.

In this paper we seek to explore concepts of self-organisation and urban complexity in two different kinds of urban analyses, and to build a shared understanding which supports urban planning and development endeavours in practice.

Epätoivon kaupungit ja perirealistinen dystopia

During the last decades, dystopic visions have become very popular, especially in the literature and movies targeted to teenagers. The genre offers many interesting works of art also for more mature taste. Two important novels from the year 2009, Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood and Ahmed Khaled Towfik’s Utopia, are describing the failure of the city in the near future. In both books two types of urban settlement exist in the same area, one for the rich and the other for the poor. They are dependent on each other, even if a protective wall – both concrete, societal and economic – is built to separate their inhabitants. I examine them especially from the point of view of inequality. I also suggest that the books represent a formerly undefined subgenre of speculative fiction, perirealistic dystopia. It is a fact-based narrative situated in the near future and intended to improve the current societal development by presenting exaggerated dystopic visions. I call this desire as the principle of no-hope.

Bricolage in Collaborative Housing in Finland: Combining Resources for Alternative Housing Solutions

Finnish collaborative housing projects are in an experimental stage. These projects are trying to push the conventional practices of housing production into a new shape in order to realize their schemes in the housing market dominated by large construction companies. This paper aims to shed light on the resident groups’ resources in a context where resident-driven projects are rare. We apply the concept of bricolage to analyse three collaborative housing projects in Finland. Our analysis highlights that the residents refused to enact limitations imposed by the dominant housing market and examines how this was made possible. The cases we studied were successful for two interconnected reasons: (1) because of the capabilities of the residents; and (2) the professional allies they had. We argue that analyses framed by bricolage can help better understand the local contexts with their real and presumed constraints, and offer a possibility for international comparison of collaborative housing.

Critique, Creativity and the Co-Optation of the Urban: A Case of Blind Fields and Vague Spaces in Lefebvre, Copenhagen and Current Perceptions of the Urban

Even though more than four decades have passed since the writing of The Production of Space, with walls, governance regimes and financial markets coming tumbling down, cities around the globe still find themselves in—and reproduce what Lefebvre would characterize as—abstract space, a space produced by economy and bureaucracy, and reproducing dominant regimes thereof beyond the grasp of users and inhabitants of cities. In this article, it is argued that an urban perception is cancelled out in the reductive struggle between two dominant perceptions of urban change. The article unfolds in three moments: firstly, an outline of Henri Lefebvre’s critique of ‘the urban’ and ‘the production of space’ is presented in order to clarify his critique of reductive perceptions and the significance of the urban in his work; secondly, a conceptualizing narrative anchoring Lefebvre’s concepts to recent developments in Copenhagen, not least developments related to the sub-cultures, is explored — showing how different agents pursue the realization of different perceptions of urban change; thirdly, it is concluded that this development needs to be conceptualized as a reduction of the urban into a residual as well as the unfolding of a dominant contradiction between ‘critique’ and ‘creativity’.

Examining the rhythms of ‘urban elements’ on walking and driving routes in the city

The article follows Kevin Lynch’s renowned formulation of ‘urban elements’ to examine the mobilities, experiences and materialities on ordinary routes in the city. Utilizing route narratives and participant-produced visual data, the article focuses on various identifiable micro-temporalities and mobility rhythms on repeated walking and driving routes, building on Henri Lefebvre’s notion of ‘rhythmanalysis’. The article examines how a framework built around rhythm and urban elements can add to the analysis of contemporary urban sites from the perspectives of situated mobile contexts, noting sequences and polyrhythmia as central temporal characteristics in the body‒environment relations.

Low energy housing retrofit in North England: Overheating risks and possible mitigation strategies

In the drive to reduce space-heating demand and associated CO2 emissions as well as tackle fuel poverty, dwelling overheating and summer-time occupant thermal discomfort might be the unintended consequences of low-energy building retrofits. This paper presents the findings of a steady-state modelled low-energy retrofit dwelling in northern England and its potential current and future climate overheating risks using UK Climate Projections 2009 (UKCP09) scenarios (2050 and 2080 High Emission Scenarios). Predictive findings highlight that retrofitting to low-energy standards increases overheating risk over time, unless passive prevention measures are included in the retrofit design. In addition, the steady-state nature of the model might not fully capture the occupants’ exposure to actual future overheating risks. Among the most effective individual passive overheating mitigation strategies are temporary internal shading, permanent external shading and night-time ventilation. Most effective is a combination of these adaptation measures, so that predictive overheating is minimised in a future changing climate, reducing the uptake of active cooling in retrofitted dwellings.

Practical application: Much research focuses on building overheating risks in the warmer South-east of England. However, this paper highlights how dwelling retrofit in north England (Sheffield) also can lead to increased dwelling overheating risk, unless passive design measures are included in the retrofit design. Among the most effective individual passive overheating mitigation strategies are solar shading devices and increased night-time ventilation, though ideally different measures are combined. Using future climate scenarios highlights that retrofits designed today might not be able to provide occupant thermal comfort in a future warming world.

MOOC-Graphies: Possibilities for Online Graphic Learning

In 2013, two research groups---the Architectural Photogrammetry Lab and the Spanish Observatory of Heritage Education---were authorized to create a digital course addressing the most recent challenges in architectural heritage: identification, documentation, representation and communication, which means drawing in a global sense. The massive open online course NEP: New Educational Strategies to Safeguard Cultural Heritage, approved as innovative teaching project by the University of Valladolid, was offered during the 2013--2016 period to achieve this goal. In addition to reviewing the different approaches on MOOC-graphy to date (focused on the area of architectural graphic expression), the purpose of this paper is to analyze the course's strengths and weaknesses.

Reframing Cities with Peripheral Settlements under the Decentralization Discourse: The Case of Amman, Jordan

The rapid spatial growth of the urban peripheries of Amman, the
capital of Jordan, calls for an immediate reconsideration of the enforced
planning policies that govern it. This paper therefore casts light on the
implementation of the decentralization discourse in one problematic
area in the Middle East, Amman City, focusing on the administrative
decentralization of decision-making, and the resulting transfer of urban
competencies and urban services.
This research intends to investigate the decentralized
administration and its application in urban planning policy by tracing
the history of one of Amman’s satellite towns, Sahab. The study will
assess the effectiveness and success of the policy implementation, and the
relationship between the Amman City core and its marginal urban node,
spatially and functionally. The study has used the international literature,
data published from a number of Jordanian public departments, and
structured interviews conducted with planners from Greater Amman
Municipality (GAM), the Sahab municipality, and random sampling of
the local community.
The results of this research indicate that the deep-rooted centralized
authority of Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) clearly runs contrary
to the hoped for decentralization approach. Accordingly, the current
urban policies have failed, on the administrative and planning level, to
create an autonomous or even semi-autonomous urban node. Instead,
an unbalanced relationship can be observed between the Amman City
core and Sahab, the satellite town. Finally, the paper closes by calling for
appropriate institutionalization of the development plans and realistic
implementation of spatial policies

Spatial solutions supporting information exchange and knowledge creation

Architectural practice is a creative, knowledge-based organization, and therefore information exchange and knowledge creation are essential components of architects’ profession. However, these aspects of architectural practice are not studied widely. The objective of this study is to analyse how the mobility of the different types of workers’ effects on the information exchange and knowledge creation in a team-based office layout. The research material was collected from a semi-large Finnish architecture office. The methods employed are qualitative: theme interviews with the employees and the executives of the office, together with the informal on-site observations. The preliminary analysis of the research material indicates that the team-based office layout supported tacit knowledge exchange and creative group work. The team rooms, however, did not support the individual working preferences of the participants. Furthermore, the tacit knowledge remained inside the team and did not spread through the whole organization. Therefore, as a downside, the team-based working inhibited the information exchange and knowledge creation between different teams.

Socio-Ecological Intervention to Promote Active Commuting to Work: Protocol and Baseline Findings of a Cluster Randomized Controlled Trial in Finland

Active commuting to work (ACW) is beneficial to traffic, environment and population health. More evidence is needed on effective ways to promote ACW. This paper describes the protocol and baseline findings of a cluster-randomized controlled study, which aims to promote ACW with multilevel strategies in two large workplace areas in Tampere, Finland. In Phase 1, the impacts of environmental strategies (trail improvements) were evaluated in 11 workplaces within Area 1. In Phase 2, five more workplaces were recruited from Area 2 to evaluate the impacts of social and behavioral strategies customized for each workplace. For this purpose, the workplaces in both areas were randomly assigned into experimental group (EXP, n = 6 + 2), which promoted ACW with social and behavioral strategies or into comparison group (COM, n = 5 + 3), which participated in the data collection only. The primary indicator in both phases is the change in employees’ ACW. Secondary indicators are e.g., changes in employees’ self-rated health, wellbeing at work, restrictions to and motivation for ACW, adverse effects due to ACW and the use and quality of the main walking and cycling trails. Also process, efficiency and environmental evaluation is included. The study is the first one in Finland to combine interdisciplinary collaboration between practitioners and researchers working in the fields of transportation, urban design, physical activity and sustainable development to promote ACW. The findings benefit all stakeholders interested in promoting ACW in urban context.

Kaupunkirakenteen kokonaisvaltainen resurssitehokkuus

The built environment and urban functions, including transportation, use notable amounts of material and energy resources. On the other hand, cities are an important source of technical and social skills, social well-being and economic innovation. The WHOLE project approaches the urban structure as a set of interactive spatial and functional networks, linkages of which direct resource generation and flows. The resource-efficiency of the urban structure is defined not only as saving and recycling re- sources, but also as their constant renewal. The main result of the project is the comprehensive re- source-efficiency model for urban structures, the WHOLE model. It conceptualises different decision types to improve resource-efficiency, presents an extensive plan of action for resource-efficiency that can be applied at different stages of design, management and projects, and suggests qualitative and quantitative indicators and calculation methods related to the plan. The project has also produced a model that combines material, immaterial and spatial resources, a qualitative evaluation model for transportation projects, and a GIS-based, modular calculation model for spatial resource efficiency. Integration between networks is suggested as a way of enhancing resource-efficiency. Instead of mere densification, the results of the project emphasise versatile network links, accessibility in broad sense and flexibility of structures in changing contexts.

Energiatehokas kyläkoulu puusta: Lähes nollaenergiakoulu Laukaalle

This master's thesis is a design proposal for an energy efficient wooden school, which considers the new approach of teaching and learning methods of the new curriculum of Finnish National Board of Education. This is a case study -like thesis and a proposal for the ongoing ecological school -project of the municipality of Laukaa, even though the emphasis is on the energy efficiency. The written part of the thesis is a comprehensive design narrative about the development, solutions, the argumentation behind it, and deliberating of these matters. This master's thesis is a concrete example of a transformable and cosy school which energy efficiency is certified by calculations.

This master’s thesis is part of the research project COMBI, which is led by Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and explores the concept of nearly zero-energy in the context of municipal service buildings. The thesis is included in the work package titled The Impact of Architecture on Energy Efficiency, carried out by TUT’s School of Architecture. The work package’s aim is to study current and future energy efficient building solutions as well as develop a tool for guiding the design and illustrating the connections between various aspects of energy efficient architectural design.

Pistepilvitiedon hyödyntäminen korjausrakennushankkeen arkkitehtisuunnittelussa

The field of repairs and renovations is constantly growing when viewed from the monetary value point of view. According to estimations made by experts, the field is facing a need for a substantial growth in resources or efficiency. One of the potential methods for increasing the efficiency in repair and renovation projects is the growing use of point cloud data technology.

Point cloud data is a dense group of three-dimensional measurements, which can be used to establish a three-dimensional model of an existing building. The most significant advantage in using point cloud data, is the three-dimensional nature and the accuracy of the measurements. Current methods for 3D-modeling an existing building rely on unreliable old blueprints and arduous measuring. The use of point cloud data simplifies the process of 3D-modeling an existing building.

This research is divided in to a theoretical part and interviews. In the theoretical part of the research I go through the different forms of information used in modeling existing structures and their qualities. At the same time, I zoom in to the terminology of point cloud data. The current terminology is used in conflicting manners and therefore I have redefined several terms. I also examine the effects of Common BIM Requirements 2012 to the information and methods used to model existing buildings.

The interviews were carried out to gather user experience to the subjects covered in the theoretical part of the research. Notable themes in the interviews were the situation of the field of repairs and renovations, the qualities of point cloud data in projects, requirements in the Common BIM Requirements 2012 and the interpretation of the above requirements in modeling existing buildings.

This research serves the field of repair and renovations in standardizing the methods used with point cloud data. With this research, architectural designers can pay attention to special features that point cloud data introduces to repair and renovation projects. With the help of this research, architectural designers can critically evaluate the information used in the project and can recommend additional information to be created.

Yksilö yhteisössä: Ikääntyneiden yksinäisyyden vähentäminen yhteisöllisellä asumisella

Loneliness is a current phenomenon in the Finnish society that has been discussed more recently in the public discourse. Loneliness can have an impact on any individual and has an extensive influence on the well-being of a person. This thesis is focused on the loneliness experienced by Finnish elderly living at home or in assisted care. It has been discovered in this thesis that experience of the loneliness and housing solutions are strongly linked. Housing solutions can either enhance or reduce the experience of loneliness.

Home and the relationship the resident has with his/her home is important to the wellbeing of the elderly. Home is often associated with different kinds of meanings and the relationship between home and ageing resident is discussed in this thesis. The idea of ageing in place has been accepted as the best solution to solve the future housing of the elderly by both society and elderly themselves. Ageing in place ensures the self-determination and independency of the elderly but does not solve the loneliness experienced by the elderly. Thus ageing in community is proposed as soluƟ on to the loneliness in this thesis. The proposed co-housing concept offers the possibility to age at home in a familiar environment but with the help of community and neighborhood.

The thesis is divided into three parts. Loneliness and co-housing are discussed in regards of different theories in the research section of the work. The themes discussed in the research section are loneliness, the experience of loneliness in relation to the environment and co-housing. Model for housing which is based on the themes found in the research section is constructed in the concept section of the thesis. Last secƟ on of the thesis consists of the application of the housing concept on one chosen planning area. The housing plan is based on the Architectural student competition Rääkkylän Mummola which was held in spring 2016. The purpose of the competition was to fi nd housing solutions for 55+ residents. The proposed plan in this thesis is developed based on the themes found in research section and comments made in the review of the competition entries.

Extending the life of virtual heritage: Reuse of TLS point clouds in synthetic stereoscopic spherical images

Recent advances in Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS), in terms of cost and flexibility, have consolidated this technology as an essential tool for the documentation and digitalization of Cultural Heritage. However, once the TLS data is used, it basically remains stored and left to waste. How can highly accurate and dense point clouds (of the built heritage) be processed for its reuse, especially to engage a broader audience? This paper aims to answer this question by a channel that minimizes the need for expert knowledge, while enhancing the interactivity with the as-built digital data: Virtual Heritage Dissemination through the production of VR content. Driven by the ProDigiOUs project's guidelines on data dissemination (EU funded), this paper advances in a production path to transform the point cloud into virtual stereoscopic spherical images, taking into account the different visual features that produce depth perception, and especially those prompting visual fatigue while experiencing the VR content. Finally, we present the results of the Hiedanranta's scans transformed into stereoscopic spherical animations.

Universal Accessibility: On the need of an empathy-based architecture

Universal Accessibility: On the need of an empathy-based architecture is a PhD thesis researching the paradigm of accessible architectural design. Starting from the very first understanding of accessibility in architecture, it analyses the evolution of the concept over recent decades up to the present, in order to evaluate its current significance.

The assumption of this dissertation is that all current theories concerning accessibility in architecture are not properly approached and/or they are poorly linked to architectural practice, since the main postulate of this thesis is that the quality of built environments is poor in respect to accessibility. Therefore, this thesis aims to point out the main problems that accessible designs face nowadays and, more importantly, to rationalize why this situation must be reversed while also exploring the tools for doing this.

Linking demand and supply factors in identifying cultural ecosystem services of urban green infrastructures: A review of European studies

Abstract Urban green infrastructure provides a number of cultural ecosystem services that are greatly appreciated by the public. In order to benefit from these services, actual contact with the respective ecosystem is often required. Furthermore, the type of services offered depend on the physical characteristics of the ecosystem. We conducted a review of publications dealing with demand or social factors such as user needs, preferences and values as well as spatially explicit supply or physical factors such as amount of green space, (bio)diversity, recreational infrastructure, etc. and linking demand and supply factors together. The aim was to provide an overview of this highly interdisciplinary research, to describe how these linkages are being made and to identify which factors significantly influence dependent variables such as levels of use, activities or health and well-being benefits. Commonly used methods were the combination of questionnaires with either on-site visual recording of elements or GIS data. Links between social and physical data were usually established either by using statistical tools or by overlaying different thematic maps. Compared to the large number of variables assessed in most studies, the significant effects in the end were relatively few, not consistent across the studies and largely dependent on the context they were seen in. Studies focused on aesthetic and recreational services, while spiritual, educational and inspirational services were not considered when creating links to spatially explicit ecological structures. We conclude that an improvement and harmonization of methodologies, cross-country studies and an expansion of this line of research to a wider range of services and more user groups could help clarify relationships and thereby increase applicability for urban management and planning.

An urban cellular automata model for simulating dynamic states on a local scale

In complex systems, flexibility and adaptability to changes are crucial to the systems' dynamic stability and evolution. Such resilience requires that the system is able to respond to disturbances by self-organizing, which implies a certain level of entropy within the system. Dynamic states (static, cyclical/periodic, complex, and chaotic) reflect this generative capacity, and correlate with the level of entropy. For planning complex cities, we need to develop methods to guide such autonomous progress in an optimal manner. A classical apparatus, cellular automaton (CA), provides such a tool. Applications of CA help us to study temporal dynamics in self-organizing urban systems. By exploring the dynamic states of the model's dynamics resulting from different border conditions it is possible to discover favorable set(s) of rules conductive to the self-organizing dynamics and enable the system's recovery at the time of crises. Level of entropy is a relevant measurement for evaluation of these dynamic states. The 2-D urban cellular automaton model studied here is based on the microeconomic principle that similar urban activities are attracted to each other, especially in certain self-organizing areas, and that the local dynamics of these enclaves affect the dynamics of the urban region by channeling flows of information, goods and people. The results of the modeling experiment indicate that the border conditions have a major impact on the model's dynamics generating various dynamic states of the system. Most importantly, it seemed that the model could simulate a favorable, complex dynamic state with medium entropy level which may refer to the continuous self-organization of the system. The model provides a tool for exploring and understanding the effects of boundary conditions in the planning process as various scenarios are tested: resulting dynamics of the system can be explored with such "planning rules" prior to decisions, helping to identify planning guidelines that will support the future evolution of these areas.

Comparing two methods for Urban Complexity calculation using Shannon-Wiener index

This study will compare the results of measuring Urban Complexity using Shannon-Wiener index in two different methods. Using a joint dataset retrieved from Foursquare API, we will measure the degree of urban complexity of every street 1. relating every amenity to the closest street segment in a computational way and then applying the calculation to the segments, and 2. applying the calculation to every cell of a grid that will be combined with the street network afterwards. The selected case study is the city of London and the dataset employed will be retrieved from Foursquare. Over 79,000 venues were collected and classified in over 660 categories. In order to proceed to the analysis, these 660 categories will be reduced to 10 based on the classification of activities observed in the public space from the traditional urban discipline. Then the urban complexity index of each Street segment of London will be measured as a simultaneous calculation of the density and diversity of collected and classified economic activities.

Function and ornament: the modern of Louis Sullivan and Eliel Saarinen

This article explores the search for modern architectural expression in the
texts of Louis Sullivan and Eliel Saarinen. The latter was influenced by the
former’s architecture, but the main focus of the study is the comparison of
their texts on architectural design process, or search for form. The similarities
found in the texts tell of a like-minded design philosophy, which was
based on observation and appreciation of nature. Nature contained ornaments;
therefore architecture could do so as well. The applications of the
ideas prompted by the common source differed in the work of these two architects, but the premise that ornaments could be a useful part of a modern
architect’s design vocabulary remained the same. The understanding of both
architects’ versions of contemporary form language has suffered from a strict
modernist interpretation. The canonical image of functional architecture has
resulted in the dismissal of many divergent interpretations of modern architectural language, including that of Sullivan and Saarinen. Although current
use of architectural ornamentation stems from various sources and not necessarily nature, a look at the aesthetic search of these two architects at the
turn of the previous century may lend some historical perspective to the use
of architectural ornament today.

Muutoksen epistemologia ja resilientit tilalliset strategiat: Maankäytön ja suunnittelun mukautumis- ja muuntautumiskykyä tarkastelemassa

The aim of this article is to question the capacity of our state-of-the-art urban planning and urban systems to adapt to continuous changes and disturbances in the operating environment. We contribute to the current debate of alleged rigidity
of planning by observing adaptability and evolution from a spatial-functional systems angle. We argue that in an attempt to help cities adapt to uncertain futures, strategic plan- ning would benefit from the epistemology of resilience and complex systems for a better performance. Resilience approach entails the notion that disturbances are non-avoidable and critical for the constant evolution of cities and regions. However, this knowledge lacks operationalisation in planning practice. We observe the adaptability of urban systems and planning by reflecting their qualitative resilience capacity, addressing implicit deficiencies due to hierarchical orientation and, propose a spatially oriented framework to help indicate resilience potential from urban morphological qualities.

Building 'Post-Growth': Quantifying and Characterizing Resources in the Building Stock

Building stocks will play growing roles in the extraction of secondary construction materials in future. Moreover, as there is a need to decouple buildings’ service provision from their material consumption, building stocks should, in fact, be considered not only as deposits of raw materials but also as reserves of space. Despite of their significance, these stocks tend neither to be well known nor systematically analysed. The end-of-life phase of buildings is especially poorly covered in research, although the aspects of buildings’ mortality and survival are fundamentally intertwined. The omission is highly problematic, because it precludes understanding the fundamental dynamics of the stock.
The current study is situated in Finland, where the basic composition of the stock is relatively well established in the Building and Dwelling Register, contrary to many other countries. Taking advantage of statistical description, this dissertation explores the geography and characteristics of obsolete parts of the Finnish building stock, that is, demolished and problematically vacant buildings. The dynamics, or the relations, within the stock are also considered on a very basic level, with the help of a simple correlation analysis. In order to exemplify refining the results of this kind of top-down research, the study then switches to a bottom-up approach and zooms into the more specific composition of a selected age-use cohort, the 1960–80s blocks of flats. The types and dimensions of the cohort’s components, or concrete panels, are inventoried, and the results are compared to the current requirements for dimensioning living spaces. Furthermore, the spatial configurations of flats, the service provided by these physical structures, are also investigated using graph theory informed typological methodology. The findings consist of a typology of flats characteristic to the cohort. Lastly, the extents of the reserves in the entire stock of demolished buildings, the stock of problematically vacant residential buildings and the exemplary cohort (its existing, vacant and demolished parts) are quantified and proportioned to each other and new construction, inter alia.
By highlighting the magnitudes of secondary deposits of materials, components and spaces, this dissertation suggests that public policy should start paying more attention to the building stock and the potentials embedded within it. Even though an unambiguous relation between vacancy and demolition was not identified, the key finding from the resource perspective is that significant amounts of obsolete buildings are geographically concentrated on cities. In order to practice sustainable policies on the building stock, planners and decision-makers should be better aware of these reserves and acknowledge their adaptation and modification capacities.

Vacant residential buildings as potential reserves: a geographical and statistical study

Vacant housing has been associated with a variety of interests from economic implications and consequences for the urban structure to the possibility of providing housing for the homeless. In addition to these social and financial aspects, unused buildings have resources embedded in them. They take land from other activities and contain refined natural resources in the form of building components and materials. Therefore, empty buildings can be regarded as reserves for housing and repositories for urban mining, i.e. material extraction. In doing so, these buildings contribute to the resilience of cities. This geographical and statistical study on residential vacancies is situated in Finland, where empty homes may also keep using energy and producing emissions. The research material consists of a vast dataset of all residential buildings with vacancies in Finland in mid-2014, a total of 275 486 buildings with 1 100 267 occupied and 378 802 unoccupied dwellings (52% of the Finnish housing stock). The paper shows several characteristics that increase the understanding of vacancies and their role in the dynamics of the building stock. Public policy should address the issue of vacancy, not only because of social and economic implications but also because of its environmental impacts and opportunities.

Accessibility improvement models for typical flats: Mass-customizable design for individual circumstances

Elderly housing policies in Finland emphasize aging in place and preparing the existing housing stock for the predicted increase in the aged population. Timely home modifications that enhance mobile accessibility are a focal target for these policies. This article introduces the idea of mass-customizable architectural accessibility improvement models (AIMs) that have been developed for typical Finnish flats. The applicability and generalizability of an AIM designed for an archetypal two-room flat is tested by applying it to nine case buildings in the city of Tampere. The model was found to be beneficial for 42 of the 45 rooms in the research material.

Imagined salad and steak restaurants: Consumers’ colour, music and emotion associations with different dishes

The aim of the present study was to examine people׳s colour, music and emotion associations with dishes from two imagined restaurants. We conducted an experiment where we asked two study-participant groups to match interior colours, background music and desired emotional states for either a salad restaurant or a steak restaurant. To evoke associations we used two dish photos – a salad and a steak dish. The hypothesis was that the study participants would choose different background music and colours for different imagined restaurants. The results show that the most often selected colour, music and musically evoked and desired emotions in the salad group were Kiwi (lime colour) combined with Jazz, Pop and Soul music, and Peacefulness and Joyful Activation. In the steak group the selections were Bordeaux (dark-red colour) combined with Jazz and Classical music, and Peacefulness, Transcendence, Tenderness and Joyful Activation. The results were discussed in terms of articulation theory that is widely used in critical cultural studies. The differences between the groups showed that the study participants made different kinds of articulations: the answers in the steak group emphasized romantic classical music and luxury, while the salad group emphasized vital (healthy food, dancing) and hedonistic (joy, pleasure) values. The results indicate that: (1) generally people value peaceful eating environments; (2) people choose different visual and auditory stimuli for an eating environment depending on the food menu; and (3) customers, in this case, expect a connection to their previous cultural experiences with salad and steak restaurants.

Demolished buildings: Empirical evidence on types, ages and construction materials

Studies have found that from the ecological perspective, preservation of existing buildings is usually more sustainable than demolition and new construction. Knowledge about the characteristics of demolished buildings could help to promote renovation of buildings and to advance more sustainable management of building stocks, but so far the acquisition of comprehensive data has posed an immense challenge for research. Due to the lack of empirical evidence, the current understanding is largely based on theorizing. To participate in bridging this gap of knowledge, the current study takes advantage of data extracted from the Finnish Building and Dwelling Register. This data, which encompass all buildings demolished in Finland between 2000 and 2012 (50 818 buildings), are utilized to investigate the ages, decades of origin and construction materials and methods of demolished buildings by building types in 11 different categories from residential to non-residential. The results show that buildings are being demolished after remarkably short service lives. On average, the demolished buildings were only 51 years old — a service life that is considered as appropriate for temporary structures in the current design guidance. Furthermore, prefabricated buildings reached lives around 20 years, which is clearly less than with in situ built buildings. The average lives of buildings made of different materials were as follows: 54 years (timber buildings), 50 years (brick buildings), 40 years (concrete buildings) and 19 years (steel buildings). A comparison to statistics covering the existing stock showed that demolition is typically underrepresented in the youngest cohorts and overrepresented in older cohorts.

Demolition Rates of Buildings with Different Functions and Construction Materials

Obsolescence of buildings is a complex phenomenon. Previous research has found that demolition of buildings is primarily determined by behavioural aspects, amongst which is the use of the building. At the same time, service life design of buildings keeps focusing strongly on physical factors, such as the durability of materials. This study intends to shed light on the relationship of the building’s function and material by investigating demolition rates of Finnish buildings that are made of different materials (timber, concrete, bricks, steel) and that have different functions (10 categories, both residential and non-residential). The study uses demolition data from the Finnish Building and Dwelling Register (50 818 buildings – all buildings demolished between 2000 and 2012) and statistical data on the composition of the entire building stock. According to the results, the building type seems to be more decisive than the material. The highest loss rates take place amongst warehouse buildings.

Monikäyttöinen koulu: Joustavuudella ekologisuutta tilasuunnitteluun

This master's thesis maps the multifunctionality of a school building from different perspectives. The goal was to explore how enabling varied uses and flexible spatial solutions could make the school building more vivid and in better use. The goal was to show how this could be a new ecological angle for school design.

Another viewpoint for this master's thesis was the new national core curriculum for basic education, that sees the pupil as a active learner. The new core curriculum requires pedagogical flexibility for spatial solutions to enable different, changing teaching and learning methods. This master's thesis shows multifunctional and flexible spatial solutions for elementary school.

The master's thesis consists of a written part that is visualized by graphs. The research approaches multifunctionality from two perspectives: in building scale from user's and the function's perspective and in spatial level. In bulding scale, the thesis maps the characteristics of a school that can answer the needs of various users. These characteristics are illustrated among the text with the exemplary school design. In spatial level, multifunctionality is approached by presenting the spatial solutions for flexibility and applying them to school design in concept level. In conclusion, a conceptual design for a multifunctional school in Vartiosaari is presented.

This master’s thesis is part of the research project COMBI, which is led by Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and explores the concept of nearly zero-energy in the context of municipal service buildings. The thesis is included in the work package titled The Impact of Architecture on Energy Efficiency, carried out by TUT’s School of Architecture. The work package’s aim is to study current and future energy efficient building solutions as well as develop a tool for guiding the design and illustrating the connections between various aspects of energy efficient architectural design.

Kaupunkikoti lapselle: ohjeita, kuinka kehittää asuntoja urbaanissa ympäristössä pienen lapsen näkökulmasta

Migration to city centres is an increasing phenomena in Finland. One of the largest groups moving to live in cities, in addition to single persons and the elderly, are families with children. Work-related moving to cities is common, but families have also become interested in urban living. However the excess demand in the housing market does not meet the willingness ot the families to move to city centres. The housing designs in the city centres also primarily focus on the requirements of adults and the needs of children have been left in the background. What kind of housing do the families with children in urban environment require and what are the details to be taken in the account from the perspective of children?

That is the question this thesis aims to answer. Research were collected to achieve an understanding of child development and requirements to create a basis for housing design from the perspective of children. The focus in on children under school age for whom home is one of the most important growth environmens and greatly affects their development. Child-friendly housing designs for different concepts are considered based on the research. These concepts involve different types of families for which various floor plans are introduced in this study. The goal is to find child-friendly housing solutions and to give means on which to build on when developing apartments designed for families with small children.

Political, practical and architectural notion of the concept of the right to the city in neighbourhood regeneration

Informed by Henry Lefebvre’s concept of the right to the city, this article discusses the issues of neighbourhood regeneration in two Finnish suburban residential neighbourhoods. The selected neighbourhoods represent relatively poor suburban areas with a high percentage of ethnic minority populations. The intention is to disclose some of the problems and potentials for participatory planning and design practices in these areas – processes that could carry out the ideals of the right to the city in urban regeneration – and to suggest that for this purpose, an interdisciplinary understanding of the relevance of current population changes in urban environment is needed.

1965: The Heart of Our Cities

Arkkitehti Victor Gruenia (1903–1980) pidetään modernin kauppakeskuksen konseptin kehittäjänä. Yhdysvaltojen ensimmäinen katettu kauppakeskus (enclosed mall), Southdale Center, rakennettiin Minneapolisiin Edinaan vuonna 1956. Gruen muistetaan parhaiten kauppakeskuksista, mutta hänen ansionsa kaupunkisuunnittelijana ja teoreetikkona jää usein vähemmälle huomiolle. Suunnittelukäsitykset nousevat kulloisenkin aikakauden haasteista ja käytettävissä olevasta tiedosta. Siksi on kiinnostavaa Gruenia lukiessa kysyä, onko suhtautuminen kaupunkien suunnitteluun kaikesta tiedollisesta kehityksestä huolimatta juurikaan muuttunut. Tässä klassikkoarviossa keskityn Gruenin kaupunkisuunnitteluteoriaan ja kysyn, mikä oli Gruenin ideoiden merkitys aikanaan ja millaisen perinnön ne ovat jättäneet jälkipolville.

An Assessment of Errors and Their Reduction in Terrestrial Laser Scanner Measurements in Marmorean Surfaces

The need for accurate documentation for the preservation of cultural heritage has prompted the use of terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) in this discipline. Its study in the heritage context has been focused on opaque surfaces with lambertian reflectance, while translucent and anisotropic materials remain a major challenge. The use of TLS for the mentioned materials is subject to significant distortion in measure due to the optical properties under the laser stimulation. The distortion makes the measurement by range not suitable for digital modelling in a wide range of cases. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate and discuss the deficiencies and their resulting errors in marmorean surfaces documentation using TLS based on time-of-flight and phase-shift. Also proposed in this paper is the reduction of error in depth measurement by adjustment of the incidence laser beam. The analysis is conducted by controlled experiments.

Quantitative + qualitative information for heritage conservation: An open science research for paving 'collaboratively' the way to historical-BIM

Insofar as our cultural heritage (CH) has become not only an economic resource but a key element in defining our identity, its accurate and flexible documentation has emerged as an essential task. The generation of 3D information with physical and functional characteristics is now possible through the connection of survey data with Historical Building Information Modeling (HBIM). However, few studies have focused on the semantic enrichment process of models based on point clouds, especially on the field of cultural heritage. These singularities make the conversion of point cloud to 'as-built' HBIM an expensive process from the mathematical and computational viewpoint. At present, there is no software that guarantees automatic and efficient data conversion in architectural or urban contexts. The ongoing research 'Documenting and Visualizing Industrial Heritage' is conducted by the School of Architecture, Tampere University of Technology, Finland based on an Open Notebook Reserarch Model. It is focused on advance the knowledge of digital operating environments for the representation and management of historical buildings and sites. On the one hand, the research is advancing in three-dimensional 'as-built' modeling based on remote sensing data, while on the other hand is aiming to incorporate more qualitative information based on concepts of production and management in the lifecycle of the built environment. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the different approaches to date on the HBIM generation chain: from 3D point cloud data collection to semantically enriched parametric models.

The Management of Change in Finland's Wooden Historic Urban Landscapes: Old Rauma

The present research elaborates the Architectural and Urban perspective on the multidisciplinary approach of the Historic Urban Landscapes, in the Fennoscandian cultural context.

The main purpose of the present study is to define and to clarify how to limit and control change in the wooden historic urban landscapes found in a specific cultural region: Finland. Managing change in the context of the thesis gathers a wide area of possible attitudes in relation to historic urban areas, including: non-intervention, intervention by conservation, development, protection, demolition or re-building. In order to adequately answer the question, one must clarify what ‘change’, ‘historic urban landscape’ and ‘wooden [town]’ imply, as well as a number of other underlying concepts.

The main focus of the study is Old Rauma – a World Heritage site since 1991, viewed in a larger context: the cultural region of the Fennoscandia. Therefore, special attention is given to UNESCO wooden urban heritage, as it represents the most valuable and, at the same time, vulnerable and delicate form of historic urban landscape discussed and managed in contemporary practice. The role and impact of the recognition of World Heritage Sites is considered mainly through the comparative analysis of similar sites in the Nordic Countries. The narrower cultural context of Old Rauma is analysed through study cases of other historic urban areas of Finland. Defining a way to deal with change in wooden historic urban areas considered from the historic urban landscape perspective in the Nordic cultural context is one of the goals of this research, starting with the particularities and valued traits of these sites. In order to achieve a broader view on the phenomenon of the wooden historic urban landscape, the considered study cases are both World Heritage Sites as well as Finnish historic towns bearing enough similarities to be analysed in the same category.

The validity of the proposed tool: the Aggregated Management Plan for Finnish historic urban areas considering the historic urban landscape approach is supported by case studies and the elaboration of the plan for Old Rauma.

Alvar Aalto and the industrial origins of Finnish 1940s community planning

In Finland the construction of post-war neighbourhoods started in 1950, but its ideological background was in the planning of the 1940s. As has been shown, the principles of Anglo-American neighbourhood unit planning and regional planning influence the structural principles that were adopted for neighbourhood units. This paper presents another narrative for the period by analysing the work of the architect Alvar Aalto, who was a pioneer of Finnish regional planning and was significantly active in community planning. After having established good relations with Finnish industry, he got the chance to develop his own community planning principles. They became close to the principles of neighbourhood unit planning but, at the same time, were personal and extended beyond them. This paper examines in closer detail three of Aalto's plans and the way he combined planning and building design. In this way it is possible to better understand the ideas of the 1940s and the importance of Finnish industry during this time. Aalto's activity during the 1940s also explains his success in later decades.

Complex patterns of self-organized neighbourhoods

Complexity theory has increased our understanding of cities as dynamic, self-organizing systems. However, the planning practice of today often collides with the complex urban realm, and is incapable of steering or even recognizing self-organization. Since many self-organization mechanisms may actually be indispensable to the city, we need a better understanding of them to develop appropriate planning tools. In this paper the complex nature of self-organization in the industrial district of Nekala in the Finnish city of Tampere is studied using isovist analyses for statistical observation to confirm the inner diversity of the spontaneously evolving phenomenon. The conclusion section includes some remarks on accommodating self-organization principles in planning.

Extending Professional Fields. Architectural Research and Regional Development

In this article, architectural research work is studied as an effective operations model in regional innovation networks of building clusters. The study focuses on the projects of an academic research team working at the University Centre of Seinäjoki, as well as on the innovation environment of the surrounding South Ostrobothnian region in Western Finland. There is no actual university in the region, but the University Centre hosts some twenty professors and their research teams from six Finnish universities. The head of the subject team is also the author of this article. Because of this, the method applied in the article is a reflective action research approach.

The actions and impacts of the research work will be analysed through three case projects. The first case is the development of the large railway station area that will form a new 20-hectare multifunctional part of the city centre of Seinäjoki. The project has strong linkages to the economic policies of the city. The second case is related to the boom in new timber construction, which has been going on in Central Europe and Scandinavia for some time, but not so strongly in the subject region of this study. The aim of the project was to train small and medium-sized building cluster firms to take advantage of the emerging business potential in timber construction. The third case is closely related to the real speciality of the region. The city of Seinäjoki is home to one of the most complete building groups of architect Alvar Aalto, the famous civic centre that consists of the town hall, library, theatre, office building, church and the parish centre. At the moment there is a very demanding renovation project going on, which was also the main subject of the recent research and development project.

The descriptions of the projects are meant to illustrate the operational field of the research team, but the main focus of the article is to analyse the innovation environment that the researchers join as players among others, thus deviating from the more conventional role of architectural professionals.

Future in wood? Timber construction in boosting local development.

Large scale timber construction has been on the upswing for some time in many European countries. Besides the building cluster, also regions and cities have taken advantage of the ongoing timber boom in their economic and spatial development. In this article the focus is on the South Ostrobothnia region and the city of Seinäjoki in Western Finland, where the potential of the business is quite weakly exploited regardless of favourable preconditions. By studying the key actors of the innovation network we are able to better understand the premises of the local development platform that should aim at boosting timber construction.

Homogenous homes of Finland: 'Standard' flats in non-standardized blocks

Several authors have successfully created and employed vintage cohorts and housing typologies in research addressing energy renovation needs in the existing dwelling stock. This paper suggests that the idea of types would be useful in creating living quality-related renovation and adaptation concepts for homes. These concepts could be used for increasing the accessibility and individuality of flats and easing life in cramped conditions by means of design. Therefore, the study tests the approach by examining the plan design of flats in one cohort: the Finnish 1960–80s' dwelling stock. A total of 320 apartment blocks with 8745 flats in 51 cities are examined. The study identifies 18 different types of flats, which are based on 10 basic layouts, representing over 80% of all flats. Although the housing production of this era was characterized by cost-efficiency and industrialized prefabrication technologies, the result can be deemed somewhat surprising. This is because the building layouts were never standardized in Finland: only the production technology was standardized. The identified flat types are estimated to cover as much as one-third of all existing Finnish flats. These findings provide future opportunities for creating new mass-tailored renovation concepts.

Liquid Planning, Wiki-Design - Learning from the Case Pispala

As the key aspects of theories of complex systems have been established, the premises for academic research on planning and on planning praxis still necessitates the development of novel planning tools and approaches to address inevitable urban self-organizing transformations. We have accepted that cities emerge from bottom up. However, planning methods simulating this emergence are still limited. Progress has been made in recent decades and many systemic, evolutionary, and computing based planning approaches have been proposed. The work here builds on these premises.
In network theoretical, computational, and democracy discourses, proxy or liquid approaches have been proposed to have potential for genuinely democratic forms of decision-making. More importantly they provide a method for information organization from bottom up in a digital platform. This process actually follows the very principles of self-organization of information in information or cognitive sciences: entropy decreases as the “bits” of information are self-organizing into coherent classes. These principles could be applied in bottom up planning approach as well. For this purpose, and to bring this discourse closer to the planning realm, I compered here the conceptualized structures of Liquid Democracy, SIRN cognitive model and prior self-organizing planning proposals to a bottom up planning experiment in Pispala neighborhood, Tampere, Finland. I evaluated its capacity for self-organization of information and hypothesized the case provides a frame for a new self-organizing planning method. Based on this evaluation a structure for a digitalized Liquid Planning procedure is suggested and discussed.

Synthetic modelling of pedestrian movement tallinn case study report

This paper builds towards the argument that pedestrian traffic in the city can be successfully simulated with agent-based computational models if pedestrians' movement patterns are appropriately studied first. Furthermore, such simulation models, when finely calibrated and supported by onsite observations, allow planners to evaluate different urban design scenarios.We present a pilot study carried out in the centre of Tallinn, and discuss a way of how pedestrian movement simulations can be conceived. In the pilot study we recorded some 120 traces of pedestrians' movement and developed a prototype of an agent-based computational model to simulate this movement. Additionally we investigated the possibility of including solar analysis into the computational model. Already this short exercise offered us some interesting insights into how certain spatial qualities and features can drive pedestrian traffic making urban walkers to verge off the shortest routes. The pilot study was carried out in the context of the High Street project for turning the centre of Tallinn into more pedestrian friendly area by redesigning urban space, calming vehicular traffic and creating new opportunities for businesses to flourish.

Potential and Barriers for Reusing Load-Bearing Building Components in Finland

The European Waste Framework Directive, as set forth by the European Union in 2008, introduced a waste hierarchy that prioritizes reuse of waste over recycling whenever technically feasible and financially possible. In the field of construction, life cycle analyses on different materials have shown that reuse of structures possesses a remarkable carbon saving potential. This is the main asset that reuse has over virgin and recycled materials, although many other opportunities have also been recognized. Nevertheless, reuse has not gained ground in Western industrialized societies such as Finland. The barriers hindering reuse have been documented in the literature and they include cost, quality, quantity, perception and trust, among others.

In this study, a panel of experts working within construction and recycling industries, research and administration was surveyed about the reuse potential of prefabricated load-bearing components made of different materials in the Finnish context. In addition, the panellists were requested to identify the main barriers obstructing the reuse of the aforementioned components. The materials include concrete, steel and timber, which cover the majority of contemporary construction in Finland. The respondents evaluated that prefabricated steel has the highest reuse potential and concrete the lowest. The future potential of timber was seen as nearly equal to the potential of steel. In general, columns and beams were estimated to have better reuse potential than floor slabs and roof trusses. The potential of sandwich panels was evaluated to be the lowest.

The survey answers point out a number of issues that need addressing in order to enable reuse of components in large scale and in industrial construction. These results may not only have implications for recycling but for the technologies used in new construction as well. Especially prefabricated concrete was seen to be burdened by not being designed for deconstruction. However, it is the lack of an established practice that seems to be the main barrier for reusing steel and concrete. Technological constraints and physical properties may nonetheless delimit the utilization of some components. As for timber, its nature as a biodegradable material seems to form the main handicap for reuse, restraining the demand. Remarkably, cost of reuse was not seen to be among the most significant barriers, unlike other studies suggest.

Indicators for self-organization potential in urban context

Self-organization is a basic mechanism by which complex urban systems organize themselves. This mechanism emerges from individual agents’ local interactions, often with unpredictable consequences at the regional level. These emergent patterns cannot be controlled by traditional hierarchical methods, but they can be steered and encouraged towards desirable goals. Self-organization is often used as an allegory for all ‘unplanned’ activity in cities. It is important to study the actual mechanisms of self-organization in cities to link the theory of self-organization to planning praxis. This work builds on ongoing work exploring novel complex planning tools and methods. Here I explore the key features of open dynamic systems identified in the literature as indicators of self-organizing capacity. I study their applicability in urban spatial planning, and propose three measurable characteristics for estimating the self-organization potential of urban activities. Flow reflects generic accessibility, and is measured using space syntax. Internal order refers to autonomously organizing entities, in this case the clustering tendencies of activities. Enriching rests upon increasing complexity and is measured as changes in degrees of entropy over time. The results indicate that (1) the study area meets the criteria for self-organization, and (2) these characteristics can be applied to discover nodes of higher potential for self-organization in a city.

Reusing concrete panels from buildings for building: Potential in Finnish 1970s mass housing

A remarkable share of European mass housing was built with large-panel systems during the 1960s and 1970s. In many countries, this stock is already being demolished or demolition is discussed due to vacancies or social problems. This trend may result in the creation of an unforeseeable amount of concrete waste. Simultaneously, EU has issued the Waste Framework Directive aiming at reuse instead of recycling. Unlike in situ cast concrete, reclaimed prefabricated concrete panels from mass housing carry the potential for reuse. The purpose of this study is to review the reuse potential embedded in Finland's mass housing stock from the perspective of the dimensions of the panels and spaces, i.e., their suitability for architectural (plan) design. The research material consists of architectural drawings of 276 blocks of flats that contain over 26 000 prefabricated wall panels and nearly 14 000 hollow-core slabs, the dimensions of which are compared to current norms and guidelines for dimensioning living spaces. The technical prerequisites for reuse are reviewed with the help of literature. The study results in identifying an inventory of panels typical to Finnish precast concrete construction, which, in principle, should not exist because the building plans were not standardized but were supposed to be unique. The panels are found to be still usable in architectural (plan) design of detached houses, which form one third of annual residential production in Finland.

Obstacles and opportunities for the reuse of structural elements

The revised Waste Framework Directive (WFD) obliges Member States to improve material recycling. The EU's objective is to achieve a recycling rate of 70% for construction waste by the year 2020. Direct re-use of building elements is one way to support the objective.

In a national ReUSE project jointly funded by the Ministry of the Environment, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Tampere University of Technology, Ekokem and Finnish Wood Research, the obstacles to and opportunities for re-use of structural elements were evaluated. The project addressed the potential and challenges currently facing the re-use of elements from existing buildings and design for re-use in new buildings. Number of case studies in which elements have been used in new buildings has also been mapped in the project.

Returning the structural components back to service in the built environment is a rather complex process affecting all the parties involved in the life cycle. Designers have to consider the new source of materials and carefully plan for deconstruction, increased demand for coordination and flexibility in decision making will be needed during construction, and finally new business areas can be opened up to provide services for the phase between deconstruction and new building. The process also depends strongly on the size and complexity of the element or structure that is being re-used.

Re-use of building elements without re-processing saves almost all of their embodied impacts and preserves their economic and cultural value. This has been always seen as the biggest opportunity to increase environmental efficiency of the built environment. In most of the cases the presented concept competes with other recovery strategies, and therefore its feasibility has to be always evaluated. Moreover, it is possible to extend the service life of such composite elements in existing building stock that cannot be easily recycled because of difficult material separation. Re- use creates many business opportunities in the local communities especially for re-distribution of salvaged material. In many cases is also cheaper to dismantle building part-by-part and sell the components than traditional demolition and waste processing. In that sense we can conclude that re-use concept is contributing to all aspects of sustainability of the built environment.

Unfortunately, there are many practical barriers to the building components re-use that should be addressed. One is the lack of strength grading rules for materials in re-used elements. This means that re-usable load-bearing components are forced to be applied for non-structural purpose unless they are thoroughly tested. Another barrier is the difficult deconstruction of existing buildings. The extended time and high demands on manual labour is usually increasing the cost of the whole process. This can be partly improved by applying standardized deconstruction practices, proper staff training and using selected technologies for deconstruction. However, the greatest impact on the building re-usability is in its design stage. Therefore we recommend addressing this issue in the planning of future steps towards resource efficiency.

Betonilähiö joustaa muuttuviin asumistarpeisiin

Suomalaisesta kerrostaloasuntokannasta 26% on peräisin 1970-luvulta. Tämän joukon yksistään on arvioitu aiheuttavan noin 70 000 asunnon perusparannustarpeen seuraavien kymmenen vuoden aikana. Rakenteellisten seikkojen lisäksi erityisesti demografiset muutokset luovat painetta olemassa olevan rakennuskannan päivittämiselle uudistuotannon ohessa. Tampereen teknillisen yliopiston Arkkitehtuurin laitoksen MuutosMallit-hankkeessa on tutkittu aikakauden suomalaisia asuinkerrostaloja asuntojen uudistamisen näkökulmasta.

Joustavan asunnon tilalliset logiikat: Erilaisiin käyttöihin mukautumiskykyisen asunnon tilallisista lähtökohdista ja suunnitteluperiaatteista

This research maps spatial solutions and spatial thinking that generate flexibility to dwellings. Flexibility is defined here as the ability to adapt to various uses. The research questions are a) what kind of spatial solutions and interrelated principles of flexible space organization can be distinguished, b) what kind of relation or interdependency is there between these spatial principles and dwelling flexibility, and c) which issues should the architect specifically focus on when designing dwellings following these principles.

The research approaches flexible dwelling space and spatial thinking behind it in two different ways. The first approach takes a look at various classifications and conceptualizations of flexible dwellings made by housing researchers in Europe since the early 1960’s. The second approach looks directly at a variety of flexible dwellings. Comparing and analyzing floor plans this approach builds knowledge and understanding on various spatial features that create flexibility.

These two approaches are treated in a comparative way. This means that the conceptualizations are used in grouping exemplary floor plans and floor plan groups are used to analyse contents and meanings of the conceptualizations. Through this double exposure a new theory, a theory of various spatial logics of dwelling flexibility, is formulated. Spatial logic, a term and concept adopted in this research, is defined as a principle or understanding that guides the organization, provision and arrangement of the built space. The concept unites tangible space and human thinking.

In this research seven distinct spatial logics of dwelling flexibility are formulated. These logics are based on transformability or multifunctionality. Alongside the logics these two basic approaches to flexible space are widely discussed.

Every logic opens up a specific view to flexibility. This means that it has certain potential but also various limitations. None of the logics is able to provide all inclusive flexibility. However, a space or a set of spaces that constitute a dwelling does not need to follow only one single logic but several logics can be combined.

The logics guide design and building. They materialize as buildings’ long­-lasting properties. The choice of a logic that architect consciously or unconsciously makes is a vitally important strategic decision that essentially affects the sustainability of the built environment.

The theory produced in this research contains new terminology and a set of concepts focusing on the thematics of flexibility in Finnish. It is useful for both design and research on housing as well as for education. The theory challenges some common design practices in housing, especially the dominant 20th­century discourse emphasizing tight-­fit functionality

Asukaslähtöinen puukerrostalokortteli tilaelementeistä: Esimerkkinä Kokkolan Nukkumatin tontin suunnitelma

This study examines resident-oriented modular timber framed construction in relation to the residential environment, multi-storey apartment buildings and apartments. Resident-orientation is a concept that in housing construction terminology, specifies the concept of user-orientation.

Special features of the production of modular timber framed construction affect design mainly in the scales of apartments and apartment buildings. When an apartment can be modified to suit the user's needs, a building's service life and the degree of utilisation increase. This study examines the possibilities of adaptable modular timber framed housing construction using the principle of adaptable zones and examples of three placement methods of modules as a tool. The analysis is supported by a large variety of modular timber framed apartment studies and their adaptable variations.

The study also attempts to better understand – regardless of the production method – the appreciation of residential environments and seeks to find an interpretation of how the built environment can be developed on the basis of residential preference studies. In addition, the study analyses the potential benefits of modular timber framed construction for realising residential environment preferences.

The study combines practical design and theoretical analysis. The study has incorporated two case designs, of which one modular timber framed housing block in central Kokkola is introduced. The aim of the study is to both determine necessary areas of development regarding modular timber framed building construction from the viewpoint of architectural and housing design; and to function as a resource for ideas and knowledge regarding the design of modular timber framed housing blocks.

Library as a Partner in Co-Designing Learning Spaces: A Case Study at Tampere University of Technology, Finland

This article presents a case of co-designed temporary learning spaces at a Finnish academic library, together with the results of a user-survey. The experimental development of the multifunctional spaces offered an opportunity for the library to collaborate with its parent organisation thus broadening the role of the library. Hence, library can be seen as a third player facilitating learning spaces. Additionally, the library's own expertise was strengthened through successful cooperation with the undergraduate students and other actors. The results support prior research, where studying in the library is target-oriented differing from other learning spaces in providing support and resources.

Joustavat asuinympäristöt: 10 visiota aikaa kestävään kaupunkiasumiseen

Housing production is usually based on the belief of predictability, but this approach is inconsistent with the fact that the future cannot be predicted. Residential design and construction must therefore adopt more flexible and adaptable principles, where the impossibility of making predictions is taken into account. Adaptable housing can help to meet the forthcoming and increasingly diverse housing needs, providing housing alternatives in a sustainable way. Ten visions presented in this publication introduce a wide range of means, methods and scales to achieve adaptability and flexibility in housing construction. The publication consists of ten design assignments created during an advanced housing design course at Tampere University of Technology in spring 2013. The publication presents not only a wide range of means to achieve flexibility in housing construction, but also their direct connection with the practice. The publication is part of a study concerning user-centric spaces in the Indoor Environment Program of RYM Oy.

Laboratorioiden yhteiskäyttö yliopistokampuksilla

Tässä artikkelissa kuvataan, miten laboratorioiden yhteiskäyttöisyyttä
on menestyksekkäästi sovellettu biolääketieteellisellä yliopistokampuksella 1990-luvulta lähtien ja miten yhteiskäyttöisyys on vaikuttanut tilaratkaisuihin eri mittakaavoissa. Artikkelissa esitellään core-laboratorion malli ratkaisuna yhteiskäyttöisyyden haasteisiin. Core-laboratorion tarkoituksena on tarjota tiettyjä erikoispalveluita, joita tutkija voi hyödyntää tutkimukseensa parhaiten soveltuvalla tavalla. Tämän lisäksi yhteiskäyttöisiä resursseja kehitetään paikallisella tasolla. Pienemmät, paikallisen tason core-laboratoriot palvelevat alan tutkimusta
alueellisesti kampuksen, rakennuksen tai huoneistojen mittakaavassa.
Tapaustutkimuksen tulokset osoittavat, että laboratorioiden yhteiskäyttöisyydessä on paljon potentiaalia tutkijoiden tietotaidon vaihdon, yhteisöllisyyden kehittymisen ja kustannustehokkaan toiminnan näkökulmista. Henkilöstön rekrytoinnin ja sitoutuneisuuden näkökulmista voidaan nähdä, että parhaat laboratoriot houkuttelevat parhaita tutkijoita. Globalisaation myötä kilpailu huippuosaajista
vaikuttaa kiihtyvän ja kansainvälinen kilpailu on jatkuvasti käynnissä. Pienelle maalle kuten Suomi, yhteiskäyttöisyyden ja jaettujen resurssien toimintamalli tarjoaa mahdollisuuden kehittää ja ylläpitää state-of-art -laboratorioympäristöjä.

Uudet arkkitehtoniset ratkaisumallit muuttavat kampuksien ilmettä

Uudet pedagogiset oivallukset sekä tekniset innovaatiot ovat radikaalisti muokanneet yliopisto-oppimista, mikä asettaa merkittäviä kehitystarpeita myös oppimistiloille. Uudenlaiset oppimistavat vaativat uudenlaisia tiloja ja paikkoja, jotka tukevat oppimista parhaalla mahdollisella tavalla. Artikkelissa pohditaan kuinka kampuksia voidaan elävöittää arkkitehtuurin keinoin? Miten eri mittakaavalliset ratkaisut tukevat oppimista, vuorovaikutusta sekä luovuutta?

Kampusten uudistamista voidaan tarkastella erilaisista tilallisista ja arkkitehtonisista näkökulmista. Tässä artikkelissa esitetään kolmen tarkastelutason ideoita kampus-, rakennus- ja tilamittakaavoissa. Kokonaisvaltaiset ratkaisut, joissa rakennuksen tilat ja toiminta uudistuvat täysin, omaavat valtavan potentiaalin muuttaa ihmisten
välistä vuorovaikutusta sekä tilojen käyttöä. Tällaiset ratkaisut saattavat olla kuitenkin kalliita ja hitaita toteuttaa. Pienemmän mittakaavan ratkaisut vaikuttavat pienemmällä alueella, mutta ovat toteutukseltaan edullisempia ja nopeampia. Esimerkiksi kampusten vajaakäyttöisten tilojen, kuten käytävien ja aulatilojen ottaminen hyötykäyttöön voisi tehostaa merkittävästi kampusten tilarakennetta. Täysin uusien toimintojen sijoittaminen näihin vajaakäyttöisiin tiloihin voisi lisäksi luoda kampuksista eläviä urbaaneja ympäristöjä, joissa on toimintaa vuorokauden ympäri. Olemassa olevat rakennukset voivat täten toimia alustoina uusille arkkitehtonisille ratkaisuille, jotka viestivät opetuksen ja tutkimuksen ajankohtaisuudesta. Tutkimuksen tuloksia voidaan soveltaa joustavasti erilaisten kampusympäristöjen muutosten suunnittelussa. Artikkeli toimii keskustelun avauksena suunnittelijoiden, kampuskehittäjien sekä käyttäjien välisessä vuoropuhelussa. Esitetyt ratkaisumallit paljastavat, että olemassa olevissa kampuksissa ja niiden tilarakenteessa on paljon kehityspotentiaalia. Artikkelissa esitetyt visiot herättelevät lukijoita katsomaan olemassa olevia kampuksia uudesta näkökulmasta uusien innovatiivisten esimerkkien ja tilaratkaisujen kautta.

School travel mode choice and the characteristics of the urban built environment: The case of Helsinki, Finland

As observed in several previous studies, the nature of the urban structure can affect children's mode of transportation to school. In this paper, we identify and investigate, in the Finnish context, the elements of the urban structure around homes and en route to school that promote children's ability to walk or cycle to school, using the conceptual domains proposed by Mitra (2013) to frame the work.

The associations discovered can, to a large extent however, be viewed as contrasting significantly with those identified in previous research, as an increase in the variables, essentially indicating urbanity, decreased the likelihood of the children walking or cycling to school. This is due to the existence of a well-functioning public transportation network in the Helsinki region. The associations were more significantly associated with the environment en route to school than with the environment around homes. This research improves our understanding of active school transportation behaviour in an environment that is already relatively supportive of active transportation and independent mobility by offering a well-functioning public transportation system.

A comparative study of urban form

This paper compares four different approaches to urban morphology: historico-geographical, process typological, space syntax, and spatial analytical. It explores in particular the use of four fundamental concepts proposed in these approaches: morphological region, typological process, spatial configuration, and cell. The four concepts are applied in a traditional gateway area of the city of Porto, Portugal. The area includes considerable variety of urban form. The main purpose is to understand how to combine and co-ordinate these approaches so as to improve the description, explanation and prescription of urban form.
