Bicycle Centre on Kansalaistori Square

Bicycle Centre 2.0

A Bicycle Centre on Kansalaistori Square would form a logical terminus to the Baana bicycle path. The concept makes use of the remaining ruins of the goods depot, with a new building made of glass, steel and wood to highlight and revitalise the crumbling red brick wall. The concept includes proposals for a temporary centre providing the most essential services.
