Projet de Master EPFL, CH
August 2013
Jeanne Wery, Georg-Christoph Holz

Housing and commercial construction will fill the territory that 50 years earlier was abandoned by the inhabitants of two islands, Nihiti and Sompasaari, now burried under Helsinki’s former North Harbour.
In reference to a fictional narrative, the project investigates the juxtaposition of the natural environment with the man made, largely the industrialised territory. In this narrative, mutations first alter organisms on the former islands, later the landscape itself is affected. The project proposes an antithesis to the Masterplan, eating its way into the formally rigid tissue of the planned city blocks.
