Elielin Kehitys Oy
Davidsson & Tarkela Architects
New life is breathed into Elielinaukio through an architectural competition. An international architectural competition is being organised by invitation to develop Elielinaukio Square and Asema-aukio Square area in Helsinki. The aim is to find a high-quality solution for both the new buildings and the outdoor spaces – while respecting the valuable history of the area.
The aim is to design a safe and pleasant pedestrian city centre with a wide variety of services in the same area. The New Eliel project and the architectural competition are a part of a larger renewal of the surroundings of the Helsinki Central Railway Station.
Currently Elielinaukio is a noisy bypass point and an end point of public transport. The project will make the area safer and clearer than before.
The functionality of the area will improve from the point of view of pedestrians and cyclists in particular. The area’s new life and high-quality architectural solutions will help elevate the Elielinaukio and the Asema-aukio area to a worthy prime location in the Helsinki city centre.
New Eliel is the only significant new construction project in the city centre that will bring plenty of the desired new jobs to the city centre. The jobs are created in the place in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area that is the most easily accessible with public transport. When completed, the project will create a new urban area in the Helsinki city centre with a wide range of services, where both Helsinki residents and tourists will enjoy themselves, engage in hobbies and use services.
The aim is to develop a new local plan for the area based on the winning design solution. The competition proposals will appear on this site shortly after the end of the competition period.
