Suburban Pride - Local environments and architecture as building blocks of identity 

The objective of Suburban Pride is to promote sustainable reconstruction of suburban environments by identifying their value factors for the residents and stakeholders. In the project, we examine the mental images associated with the suburbs as well as the suburban architecture and landscape architecture as building blocks of suburban identity. The results and impact of the project will be realised in the form of research articles, popularised opening of a dialogue and workshops aimed for the purposes of planning and for local communities. 

The two-year project launched in early 2021 will be implemented in a consortium between Aalto University and University of Turku.

The project is part of the neighbourhood development programme of the Ministry of the Environment and is funded by the Housing Finance and Development Centre of Finland.
