Transformation of the Kortepohja Student Village (Jyväskylä, FI) A holistic approach to urban transformations as a basis for the socially-informed evolution and reconfiguration of cities.
Many European cities are faced with the problem of adapting their dated building stock to current living standards. This can create a potential stimulus for improving the overall social cohesion in urban areas. However, isolated refurbishments at a scale of single buildings do not always guarantee such contextual regeneration.
This transformation proposal for the Kortepohja Student Village addresses the challenge of improving the quality of urban living through rejuvenating the existing building stock while embedding a holistic approach at a variety of scales.
Interventions range from an overall development plan through a masterplan to the transformation of Rentukka - central student social hub, proposing a regeneration scheme for both students and local residents.
The goal is to show how cautious transformation can be used as a holistic tool in consolidating connectivity, functionality and visual perception in urban areas, reestablishing them as social platforms.
