Vuosaari Urban Garden

Vuosaari Urban Garden combines seating and gardening elements, creating a comfortable stop-over on an open city square in Mosaiikkitori, Vuosaari.

The elements were co-planned with Vuosaari high-school students as a part of an urban planning course led by Päivi. The plants were grown inside Vuotalo gallery as part of the Orastus-project. The garden was designed and built in the spring 2015 have since been regularly in use by random passers-by and the plants, grown and tended by local children, have been successfully left to grow.


Ideas turned into quick small scale models by participating students.
