An international idea competition for the Linnanniemi area in the surroundings of Turku Castle took place between 9 January and 28 May 2020. An exceptional number of proposals from both Finland and abroad was submitted for the competition concerning a unique area.
The competition entries will be published for public commenting on Thursday 25 June at 12 pm (noon) on the Kerro kantasi (Voice your opinion) service.
The competition entries are presented on the same day between 2 pm and 3 pm in an information session open to all. They are presented by Mayor Minna Arve, chair of the competition jury, and Director of Urban Planning Timo Hintsanen, vice chair of the competition jury. You can join the event by clicking this Teams live link.
The competition entries are available for public commenting between 25 June and 5 August 2020. The jury will consider the comments made by the public and the comments will also provide support for upcoming decisions to be made regarding the Linnanniemi area. The jury of the competition aims at making the decision in a way that the result can be made public in September.
The entries will remain on display even after the time for commenting has ended. Some of them will also be presented in an exhibition organised in the autumn.
The international idea competition for the Linnanniemi area was open to all and it was organised by the City of Turku in collaboration with the Finnish Association of Architects (SAFA) and the Finnish Association of Landscape Architects (MARK).
