dc.description.abstractI designed the Winter Market having citizens of the city and tourists in mind. I thought of a public space being vibrant with life all year round. Hietalahdentori Square is occupied in hot season and it is an active flea market in the summertime. In winter, however, this activity declines due to severe climate conditions. Designing the wooden market for the citizens of the west part of Helsinki, I hoped to enrich the trading offer of Hietalahdentori Square by additional services such as selling fresh, healthy food. Marketing idea – the Winter Market is a place where fresh, healthy food can be bought or where one can make use of the restaurant services. The main purpose of the Market is a quick sale of the short expiry date products, which are so needed in Scandinavian countries. I decided to use wood for constructions and details of the project. Wood is a national building material of Finns; both small-scale architecture and public buildings are created with its use. The quality of wooden architecture in Finland is regarded as one of the best all over the world. Another reason why I chose to use wood is the fact that wooden minimalistic pavilion of the Winter Market will be a wonderful supplement to the composition created by the industrial port architecture and antique buildings surrounding Hietalahdentori Square. Architecture of the Winter Market is transparent, classical and full of light both in summer and in winter. The advantage of a transparent building is the fact guests are interested in the goods inside while passing it. Thus, there appears a close interaction between the interior and exterior. While designing the Market I thought of both making use of the smallest area of the square and leaving the view from the square towards the port open. To compensate for building up a part of the square, I would like to underline that is a part for a parking lot now. Thus, the Winter Market takes the present parking space and a new parking lot is placed underground. The design is supposed to be the landmark of the west port of Helsinki The Winter Market has a great chance to dominate the area as it is located at the closure of two important streets leading to the centre of Helsinki. It is also visible from the west port, where ferries from European countries arrive. /Kir10en
