Juha Suonpää's photographs at Housing Fair 2012 Tampere

The national Housing Fair 2012 is held in Tampere in the district of Vuores between 13th July and 12th August 2012:

"The fair area has 39 homes that are open to the public and provide an overview of state-of-the-art developments in building design and construction. Examples include an ecological low-carbon-emitting wooden house, a home that supports the wellbeing of its residents, a functional house that is designed for active families with children, a modifiable loft semi-detached house, and a zero-energy house that is self-sufficient when in comes to energy production."
