Hernesaari is a landfill peninsula in front of Helsinki, recently opened for development by the departure of Aker shipyards. The design strategy deploys two organizational systems in order to create a diversity of formations within a connected urban field: continuous surfaces and rhythmic patterns. The surfaces are used to produce topographic formations in reference to the many bays along the shore. In some instances they are layered and warped. They create buildings which are either embedded in the landscape or engendered as an extension of it. The rhythmic pattern forms the second organizational device, operating on multiple scales. It creates pebble-like morphological typologies. Together they form a new urban sensation. The project was exhibited at the third Beijing Architectural Biennale
