The topic of the group assignment on our course was gender. Our impression of Otaniemi is that it is rather male-dominated, so we made new street signs for a few streets in Otaniemi in which we make humorous comments about the situation.

‘The topic of the group assignment on our course was gender. Our impression of Otaniemi is that it is rather male-dominated, so we decided to make new street signs for a few streets in Otaniemi in which we make humorous comments about the situation. The Betonimiehenkuja street was given a name in English – Gender-neutral Concrete Street – and the Miestentie street was turned into Sukupuolineutraalientie (Gender-neutral Road).’
