"In the future much of the expansion of Helsinki region will be based on the transformation of highways into urban boulevards. We saw the competition as a chance to explore the possibilities of this future field of design and to come up with new innovative solutions proactively. When it comes to productivity there’s a vast unharnessed resource in the energy and ideas of people regardless of their status as residents, workers, entrepreneurs etc. We believe that creativity and unexpected solutions emerge when given a chance. "
