With the Sibbesborg sustainable community competition Sipoo is calling for fresh ideas and innovative approaches to land use planning and regional development. In order to succeed, the process will shake up the traditional models of a planning competition: we need a programme for the competition, and the criteria for the planning&design process based on the vision of a sustainable community.
The Aalto University Department of Architecture arranged three workshops for invited professionals from the field of planning&design and sustainable urban development. These workshops focused on developing the Sibbesborg future vision and the new format for a sustainable planning&design competition. In order to reach also international audience, all presentations during the workshops were in English and the key notes were transmitted to the website in English during the debate. Also a fourth workshop was held and was aimed to the residents and other actors in the area.
It is still possible to watch the workshops online.
