Approximately 4,000 buildings are demolished in Finland every year. Would it be possible to imagine a future in which buildings would only be demolished if absolutely necessary?
The climate crisis and biodiversity loss will in the coming years force the building sector to radically overhaul its practices. At the same time it is appropriate to consider the relationship between nature and the built environment from more theoretical viewpoints, writes Kristo Vesikansa.
Which buildings of our time get valued by the future generations is the result of an interactive process involving the media, professional institutions and the users of buildings and urban spaces.
The development of new housing concepts has taken place almost solely according to the conditions of construction companies, seeking to gain cost savings, criticises Kristo Vesikansa.
