The Vision and Toolbox for the Future Seinäjoki City Center will be presented in the book launch event at the Apila Library in Seinäjoki on November 2019.

The Vision and Toolbox for the Future Seinäjoki City Center provides a framework for developing the city as a socially sustainable, active and green city with a human scale. The Vision is accompanied by an Urban Toolbox that offers a wide-ranging palette of different kinds of interventions specifically designed to help support the city to develop in its desired direction. The goal is to create a city that provides an accessible and inclusive urban place for people to live and work in and offers a richly layered and well-balanced environment for future growth.

The Vision for the Future Seinäjoki City Center has been commissioned by the City of Seinäjoki, Department of Land-Use Planning and Urban Design and created by OOPEAA Office for Peripheral Architecture in collaboration with Gehl People. OOPEAA has served as the project leader providing the architectural perspective and approach to the vision and the urban toolbox. Gehl has served as an expert consulting on matters of the social dynamics of urban public space. The Green Strategy developed by VSU Landscape Architects in 2018 has served as a valuable reference in the process of preparing the Vision and Toolbox for the Future Seinäjoki City Center.

The process of preparing the Vision for the Future Seinäjoki City Center included also a set of workshops engaging representatives of the city, experts, as well as upper school students and citizens of Seinäjoki.

We warmly thank all our collaborators for their contribution to the process! Welcome to join us in the event launching the book and presenting the Vision and Toolbox for the Future Seinäjoki City Center!
