The City of Kouvola organized this international design competition for an area in development in a scenic location right by the River Kymi.

The area to be designed is adjacent to the river, in the midst of a residential, industrial, and mixed use area and is near a busy street.
As a result of these circumstances, the planning is oriented towards the river.

This means that the path system and the open spaces are created in relation to the water and therefore the entire district acquires a high quality.
