The Scandinavian Green Infrastructure Association rewarded The Greenest of the Green block in Jätkäsaari with the Scandinavian Green Roof Award 2018. Our group was involved in the planning and design of the block from the beginning, contributing to a life-size experimental design for various green roof and wall solutions.
The award-jury motivation for the award:
”The Greenest of the Green is a clear example of the multifunctionality and importance of urban green infrastructure, not only in the manifested project but also through the process of involvement during the development of the building. The project goes further than most other projects with its ambitions to include several different vegetation systems with different functions and goals. It is a brave and enthusiastic project that includes contemporary ideas about how green buildings can be designed and built at the same time as setting an environmental benchmark for the future.”
