TAMPERE | Tampere Arena by Studio Libeskind

Central Deck and Arena project in Tampere, Finland is an urban scale development on top of existing railway tracks in the heart of the city. Designed by Studio Libeskind. The mixed-use program includes a multi-purpose ice hockey arena, four office blocks topped by residential towers and a hotel with residential condominiums on top.


The arena, which occupies one fifth of the complex, has the capacity to accommodate 11,000 fans. With its shopping arcade, bars and restaurant at deck level, the arena redefines its pivotal function as a hub for diverse urban activities. There is a total of approximately 60,000 m2 of mixed-use program area and 38,000 m2 of arena space, including a practice field and wellness center.

Those renders look great! My only concern is the lack of glass on the towers, but if the cladding really is as reflective as in the renders it will still look good.

It looks otherworldy, alien. But inhumane. Another city about to be ruined by cold, sterile, repetetive starchitectism.

To be honest Tampere is neither old, nor does it have any classical beauty. It's essentially a modern city with some interesting 19th century industrial remains. These plans mark a significant improvement and are quite impressive for a city of only 220 000 inhabitants.

That's what they said about dozens if not hundreds of other large-scale repetitive modernist and brutalist/deconstructivist projects in the past decades, that ruined cities across the planet. Remember Pruitt Igoe...

It doesn't even matter if nothing old is harmed or contrasted here. It's just inhumane, cold and hostile architecture that doesn't comfort. Like most of Libeskind's psychotic work.

For many cities that would be true but not in this case. Present day Tampere is to a large extent a product of the very modernists ideals you speak of, however, those modernists never created anything half as good as this proposal.

That might be true. But at the same time, this seems like repeating the same mistake on a larger scale.

No city can live exclusively on modernism. There's not a single modernist place that is half as good as a properly mixed city, also based on living quality rankings.
While of course there's a few places where it worked much better than in others, take Tel Aviv. But usually the really good working 'modernist cities' are in the warm southern regions, where cold modernism really has a much better effect. Finland imho is way too cold and dark for austere, sterile and ice cold modernism.

Finland needs warm and cozy architecture, classical expressions and colours.
