Abstract

The three Human Cities exhibitions held at Aalto University in September, 2017, display three different scales of participatory design: European, Finnish and global. The integrative theme in the role of Aalto University in all of these exhibitions has been structural, systemic, contextually sensitive social innovations for user-based architecture.

Our third Human Cities Helsinki exhibition displays course work from the study course Diversifying Forms of Living, which was accomplished with the Department of Architecture at Hong Kong University. The exhibition is called Superimposed Verticality and it scrutinised new housing typologies which would made possible user-based flexible design solutions: horizontality and verticality, internal and external, communicative and participatory design, optimized use and social sustainability. We deliberately selected a difficult case for participatory design here: tall housing building.
