During the Fall of 2019, the studios of Urban Design and Housing Design collaborated on a site in Viikinranta - a location close to a natural sanctuary, with light industry, low-density residential development and a future node of a tramline. The joint venture between the studios gave the students an opportunity to explore the dynamics between the choices made at the level of land use and at the level of building design.
