Welcome to participate in the planning of Linnanmaa-Kaijonharju area!

In the late 1960s a decision was made that the University of Oulu was to be moved to Linnanmaa, 5 kilometers outside the city center. A two-phase architectural competition was held in 1967 to design the new university campus and Kaijonharju residential area. In the 1980s the Technology Village was founded in the Linnanmaa next to university. The Technology Village is the internationally famous starting point of developing information technology industry. There is also south of the university the Puu-Linnanmaa residential area, the first modern wooden residential area in Finland. Now the Linnanmaa-Kaijonharju area is lagging behind modern times and it needs to be developed and improved.
