Lessons from BK City – after the fire 
– for university buildings of the future

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterProfessional


As this book was being written, the EU Interreg Central Baltic programme 2014– 2020 has been running for nearly four years, and some of the projects, including Live Baltic Campus, are now reaching their conclusion. The programme’s objective is to co-finance projects in Finland (including Åland), Estonia, Latvia and Sweden, which aim at solving common challenges together and across borders. The programme belongs to the Europe- an Territorial Cooperation framework (ETC), which provides a framework for the implementation of joint actions and policy exchanges between national, re- gional and local actors from different member states. The overarching objective of the ETC is to promote a harmonious economic, social and territorial development of the European Union as a whole.

The editors hope that this book, which presents the methods for design thinking and participative urban planning as explored in the Live Baltic Campus project, will offer food for thought to planners and policy makers, and that it will serve as a useful and inspiring source for modern urban planning processes.
