Challenges in urban planning to be discussed by international teams, Finnish experts and city residents

Armi OPEN Workshop – Urban Brain Stream is an international workshop that aims to develop our urban environment. It is part of the programme of both World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 and the Helsinki Design Week. In a series of workshops, to be held around the world in a span of 24 hours on 6 September 2012, professionals in architecture, art, business, construction, design, graphic design, media and traffic planning, together with city residents, discuss current challenges in urban planning in the context of each city involved. The workshops will discuss topics that have to do with movement and communication – the redesigning of the experience of moving and communal urban spaces. The findings of the workshops will be summed up in an open public meeting at the Huutokonttori information centre in Jätkäsaari, Helsinki, on Friday 7 September 2012, from 3pm to 7pm.
