Second phase of the competition starts!


The city of Mikkeli would like to thank all the participants in the Satamalahti international architectural competition for their excellent entries. The competition received a total of 107 proposals from around the world whose broad spectrum and wide variety of ideas surprised the organizers. The jury sat down for days to reflect on and evaluate each proposal’s merits and weaknesses. From received entries 21 were selected for detailed viewing. Evaluation process weighted effects on cityscape, ecology, transport, and the possibility to implement the plan in an economically reasonable manner. In the end five entries were selected for the second phase and those participants have been contacted.

Second phase of the competition is held from 19.11.2012 to 31.1.2013. The city commission scale models of second phase entries in February 2013. The evaluation of the second phase take place in March. Results of the competition and evaluation report of all the entries will be published in early 2013.

The city of Mikkeli wishes all participants success in the future.
