In the ideas competition for Kouvola’s central quarters we visioned the complementary construction options and the development of the existing functions in the city center area. With the competition, the city of Kouvola wanted to find a solution that would fit the city’s image and special characteristics and develop the area of the current market square and hall as well as connections. MUUAN’s approach was to strengthen the identity and characteristics of the city.
