The Mayor of Tampere has announced Danish architects COBE and Finnish Lundén Architecture as winners of an international competition for the Tampere Travel and Service Centre. The winning scheme, “Reconnecting Tampere” will join two disparate districts in the heart of Finland’s second largest city and establish a “new urban living room” beneath an expansive steel canopy.  ”Tampere’s new Travel and Service Centre has not only the potential to become a gateway to Tampere and the rest of Finland, but also the potential of becoming a generator for the future development of the urban center of Tampere,” says Dan Stubbergaard, Founder and Creative Director of COBE.  “The vision, ”ReConnecting Tampere”, introduces an intermodal transportation hub in the heart of the city as well as a development plan for uniting the city center. By introducing a diverse urban structure that extends from the east to west across the rail yard, the project provides a solid and robust foundation for unifying the two sides of Tampere’s city center once and for all.” View more View full description
