May 4: Viikki housing
A large part of Viikki is an eco-housing community comprising sustainably built/operated housing, which we took a stroll through.
Swale pond. By the vignetting of these photos, I infer that this was during my post-camera-lens-mechanism-damage, pre-knowing-exactly-how-to-get-around-it phase.
A varied material ensemble.
"Ultramodern Flowerboxes" would be a good name for a synthpop band.
Two ducks, do you see them?
The long way out to the Barn.
We were inextricably compelled toward the Dome.
A big workshop building, maybe available for any resident to use, I forget the exact arrangement.
Early spring garden beds.
Buds budding, a welcome sight.
Slats + a binocular peephole.
Sitting lightly on the land.
Tri-bridge across the stream, just like the one in Stockholm.
Another bridge, this one designed by Juhani Pallasmaa.
All kinds of arcs. — Edit 5/4/2020: also reminds of the structure of the Korkeasaari outlook tower.
There are lots of pedestrian paths throughout the area, which is quite pleasant.
