The operations of Laituri Information and Exhibitions space of the City of Helsinki are to end in Kamppi on 30 November 2018. In the future, customer services related to urban environment development and construction will be available at Sörnäistenkatu 1. You can also explore themes related to urban environments in the Central Library Oodi.
The Customer Service Point for the City of Helsinki’s Urban Environment Division in Sörnäinen is already providing assistance in many issues related to built environments. In the future, the customer service provision formerly offered at Laituri will also be provided there. The exhibitions at Laituri will be put on hold until further notice.
You can drop by at Sörnäistenkatu 1 from 19 November 2018 onwards and learn more about city planning and projects related to parks, streets and traffic in their display phase, i.e. projects that you can still provide feedback on to the City. The same information is also available online at www.hel.fi/helsinki/en/housing/planning/current/.
Individual Information and Advice on plans and the urban environment is available at our Sörnäistenkatu premises at 9–16 from Monday to Thursday and at 10–15 on Friday. You can also reach the Urban Environment Division’s customer service department by calling 09 3 102 2111 and electronically at www.hel.fi/helsinki/en/administration/participate/feedback/.
The Brygga participatory facility to be opened in Oodi
Starting from 5 December, you can learn more about themes related to urban environment in Helsinki at the Brygga participatory facility located in the Central Library Oodi. It is not a replacement for Laituri, but a new place for residents to visit and be informed of the opportunities for participation related to the urban environment.
“At Brygga, you can find information, share ideas and give feedback to the City. City employees, in turn, can come there to talk about the projects we are working on,” says Head of Unit Roosa Kallio from the Participation and Customer Communications Unit of the Urban Environment Division.
Brygga is located on the balcony of the first floor of Oodi, and it is accessible every day during the opening hours of Oodi. Urban Environment Division staff will be present 14–18 Monday to Friday. The more traditional City information and advice service will be provided at Helsinki-info, which is located on the first floor of Oodi.
You can still catch the free-of-charge exhibitions at Laituri
Laituri will be open regularly at its familiar address of Narinkka 2 until closing (Mon–Wed 10–16, Thu 10–19 and Fri–Sat 12–16). The final exhibitions allow you to explore new architectural sites in Copenhagen and the award-winning works from the planning and realisation competition for the Pasila Tower Area.
New premises are currently being built for the use of the Urban Environment Division near Kalasatama metro station, and they will be completed in the summer of 2020. Once finished, the new building will offer excellent opportunities for organising various exhibitions and public events.
