to be in a place ”
Edward S. Casey
Designing the environment
is about interpretation of places and making places
”Space allows movement, place is pause.”
Yi-Fu Tuan 1979
“Place is a totality made up of concrete things that determine an environmental character, an atmosphere. Place is more than just a location. It is a qualitative, total phenomenon, which cannot be reduced to any of its properties without losing its concrete nature out of sight.”
“We don’t live in ‘space’”.
Place = lived space
Public space = a good place

Landscape planning in Helsinki is integrated within the land use planning process, both in master plan and detailed plan levels.
The Environmental Unit aims to create preconditions for a diverse living environment rich in recreational values.
We are responsible for a green areas strategy for the whole city.
Our primary concern is to bring forward and guard landscape related values in the city planning process, and to develop the green areas structure on these grounds.
The landscape architects have local knowledge, but also a holistic vision of the role of green areas in the city scale.
