The planning for the new Tripla Centre in Central Pasila started in 2010 with YIT Construction Ltd in preparation for the design competition organised by the city of Helsinki and Senate Properties. With the initiative from AS&H, the Dutch Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) joined the design team after a negotiation period. The new centre in Pasila required a unique identity, innovative architecture, a diverse mix of services, jobs and housing, and pleasant public outdoor and indoor spaces, without forgetting a strict ecological criteria. The task of Tripla is to naturally combine the East and West Pasila with one another, and in the future, the Southern Tower Area will also be connected to the residential area of Northern Ratapihakortteli.
