About Place Blog

NEW! SEE PLACES MARKED ON A MAP (opens in new window).

This blog is established with the aim of documenting interesting places and aspects of the Helsinki Metropolitan Area. It was first conceived in 2007 as an accopanying project to a BA thesis. It has greatly developed since and is entirely open to collaboration.

Update 18/08/07:
I have started a collaboration with the Helsinki University of Technology in which students of the Urban Planning course of the Summer School will contribute to the blog with their own documentations of places they found interesting in Helsinki.
On Friday 17/08 I held a lecture for them in which I presented the project and its background. _________________________________________
