The Burqini/Veilkini/Modest Sea Alternative Swimwear etc. are brilliant outfits for the beaches of tomorrow. As the ozone layer shrinks these outfits will be recommended for everyone spending time in the sun.
I’d also like to learn if are there of guidelines concerning housing cooperatives and condominiums where occupants share some living spaces with other occupants. How does contemporary architecture of Helsinki approach these kind of sensibilities? In the past the city has not been concerned if I see into my neighbor’s livingroom. Houses have been built so close to each other that citizens can monitor each other. I could argue that the possibility to monitor neighbours is even a part of the design of our cities: Making both work and living spaces transparent for the public eye is a common agenda for our architecture and technology. From the perspective of economics there is no difference between the inside and outside of the house. Both sites have been pierced by the same technology.
