HH 134 - STATUES
Valtteri Osara (FI 1978)

Three glazed towers are added to the site, and together with the “tall” silo, they form a “silo square” - a public space. The towers have modest floor sizes, comprising residential and business units, offset in boxes. The first floor of one tower is larger, and contains a business hub. The main silo is taken up with storage units for local people, and has a roof-top garden and viewing area. A number of parking spaces are located beyond the main square created by the buildings.
Owing to its pronounced character, Statues can be described as a polemic plan. The small-scale towers have a pleasing, small footprint, but their spatial quality is doubtful. Despite their appealing appearance, the jury was not convinced that the new towers were in harmony with the identity of the site.
