"helsinki university" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Urbanist

"An imposing neoclassical facade in light yellow overlooks the Baltic Sea in western Helsinki. Built in 1841 by the German architect carload Vic engel, the lapping laty hospital looks at least at the locals, more like a stately mansion, or a seat of government than a place of healing. That's because engel perhaps more than any other architect has shaped the cityscape of Helsinki. He designed many of the city's most famous landmarks, including the iconic Helsinki cathedral, the Senate building, the Helsinki city hall, and the main building of the Helsinki university. The sense of stateliness is accentuated by the large slash gardens that surround the hospital's main building. For over a 160 years, that is until 2008, the London Latin hospital functioned as a psychiatric ward, making one of the oldest of its kind in Europe. When the hospital activity ended, the city of Helsinki rented the space out to grassroots organizations and it gradually became a bustling hub of artists, startup companies and urban activists that it is today. It is also home to cafes, a museum, a restaurant and several artisanal shops focusing on local craft. It reaches peak popularity during the warm summer months when the sunsets of the Finnish summer bathe the area in a soft golden glow, and the citizens of Helsinki flock to its coastal cliffs to enjoy drinks at a late evening dip in the sea. The area also features one of Finland's oldest public sounders, which welcomes visitors. All year round. The former hospital area has also become a popular site for all kinds of grassroots events. Such sides serve an important social purpose in a city where the rents are high, and there is a lack of non commercial public spaces for citizens. Such is the popularity of the lab in Latin hospital that when the city announced plans to sell the building and its surroundings to an international real estate investor with roots in Luxembourg, it caused a major backlash and sparked a citizen's initiative to protect the area. The developer pledged to renovate and to protect the hospital building, but it also unveiled plans to build a modern luxury hotel, as well as two high rises in the area. The plants cost a large scale public outcry. Citizens were concerned that these plants would spell an end to the autonomous, open for all nature of the area and drive away the residents, artists, artisans, activists, and entrepreneurs, that are the key reason to its popularity. Many public bodies joined the activists in their opposition to the plans among them the Finnish heritage agency, whose task it is to safeguard Finland's cultural heritage. They argued that privatising the area would fundamentally change the social dynamics of this important urban space. Facing increasing criticism, the city of council voted the proposal down in June 2020. The fate of the area is still far from certain, but for the time being its current custodians have been given an extension. The more attention the areas fate receives and the more political infighting in sparks, the more popular the label lati hospital gets among the locals. Helsinki has a strong tradition of urban activism and of turning disused public buildings into blossoming urban spaces. Former public buildings such as hospitals and train depots have spawned some of his most popular music festivals, startup hubs, and concert venues. Vibrant and livable cities need community spaces such as the lobby Latin.

"H. m. a. n. Henry welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me really truly honored and humbled to be with you. I'm excited to dig in. And as i mentioned before we started recording. We will run out of time before we run out of material but we must start somewhere. I wanted to start perhaps an odd place and that is to go into mythology for a moment and specifically to talk about. If i'm getting the pronunciation right typhon the mythological beast who lived under the volcano aetna. And i've read that at one point you felt like this mythological beast and i would love for you to explain why that is the case okay. Well let's going right back to early years. Great place to start actually basically i had raging severe exim. Ah that's a skin. Affliction many people might know of in think of it as just a rash or something now and then but it can be quite severe. And i had it chronically for. I guess like more or less i. It's hard to sell two to three decades of my life starting from the age of six months. And when i was a kid i was often in hospital for stretches and stuff it was. It was that level and thai fong. I remember hearing about him in class. School to greek mythology lived under mount etna volcano. And he kind of could survive the sulphurous raging heat down there and i lived quite a lot of my early life in a kind of self risk. Raging heat came out through my skin. I don't want to overdramatize it but for living it from the inside it was very difficult. Who is like being slowly on fire or something is. When it's bad it itches to an unimaginable degree. It's really quite debilitating and the doctors in the uk in the nineteen seventies. When i was growing up they didn't really have a lot of great set a tools. They had one tool that was really effective which was heavy steroids but they didn't like to use them. The thing that really made the big difference for me was actually meditation. I took it up in my early mid twenties and it made a dramatic difference quite quickly over forever. Things really shifted once. I started meditating. And i'm not suggesting that all ex ima sufferers will find the same thing because there's a complicated multifaceted affliction and the on clearcut factors. Actually it really is rather tricky. I think for a lot of people to to handle it. But for me that piece of essentially getting a method for calming the nervous system. Which i had not realised needed calming by the way the thing is again. If you grow up with this kind of thing. I think anybody with a chronic ailment to some kind knows what this is like that i mean i suppose it depends when you first get it but especially for kids you just think this is normal. You don't know the something dysfunctional going on. Just this is how the world is a mike is. I started to actually taste a different kind of way of being alive. It was a really big deal. It was wondrous to me is going to hop into also paint a picture for folks because you had this itching weeping bleeding and so forth and the severity of it is remarkable and what i've read it. At least that is having a district nurse coming to you. Daily lane you on a towel. Bathing antiseptic solution wrapping. You coulter bandages and so on. I mean this was a non trivial condition. And when you say that you weren't even aware that the nervous system needed calming. Do you think the eczema was in response to something. That was a psychosomatic. And not in a not in a way that diminishes it but literally psycho hyphen somatic. Response to something that you can identify. Do you have any thoughts on what generated that experience. Well yes i do. Actually i think i mean the kuzina certain says this is kind of private personal mythology of another kind but what happened was that when i was six months old my parents were living. First semester in helsinki and actually both. My parents were professors. Both in russian studies and they had a my dad. Actually i had a fellowship. Helsinki university for a semester. And we all went over those my older brother and myself just six months old mom and dad and this may sound a little fanciful but it's actually real untrue. Because this is actually back in the ninety sixties when the cold war was really hot. Really happening that that time. Basically.

I think a great way to begin. This conversation is with one of my favorite lines of yours. Which is that you want. Said i am the least powerful. Ceo in the world. I love this concept because it'll introduce the idea of culture teams and people that we're going to spend most of our time talking about which may send a little strange for a video game company. But i think it's amazing and critical. So what did you mean by this line. Why did you say that. What does it mean to super cells. Culture i thanks so much for having me better. I think some are behold point. The ball trays that the more decisions that the snake and i make the better in an ideal were like if i five no decisions then but would make me. I guess is far full. Co the whole idea about supercell on what is at the core of our culture is this idea is small and independent themes that equal cells and these independent gained things sacred inside supercell way to think about them think about smaller start ups bidding raider company. That's why we think about them. I'd love to go back before super cell. Because i think your career up until that point helped inform you in how to build supercell with less focus on command and control and more focused on decentralized trust and i think our lessons today will be applicable across creative pursuits and industries. Not just in gaming what were you doing. Prior to founding supercell and what lessons that you learned or were taught by your experience before this business. I need to go back to the year. Two thousand so. I will still a student at helsinki university of technology. I had a business major vote on my actually like in my early of my studies for some reason. My dream job was to become either a management consultant. Thouray investment banker simply. Because because everybody else in my cloth wanted to catch and so deny then at some point in my studies. I was really interested in about entrepreneurship. And i started to think. Well this would be really cool. You know trying to build your own sing with a group of great people. And then i just looked like super lucky. I happened to bump into this group of people who wanted to found a company and it had to big games company on earlier. Especially in my dna cheers. I had to be a massive game. Iran still played a little gains. And then these guys may creating afford to pay any salary on threes and there was nobody else will what's gonna applying to join them although us nevil gains and they needed somebody else to do everything else and i was probably the only applicant assay and then i got the job done. I didn't get any pay funny. Anything is these guys for that. Okay you gotta do all the sales for us than me to give you like a proper titles and the people would actually like to see you. I guess they didn't know what to call me seven. They decided to call me the ceo. And i think. I was twenty two years of age and absolutely no idea what i was doing at never had a proper job except on summer. Jobs are my parents. They probably never had a proper job. Because all i've done. I've been ceo gaming companies. But anyway that's how they're going to start it. I know i had no idea what we were doing. Learnt by ewing an end eventually managed to graduate some there in bethany. and so. that's how we're gonna start in the thousand so set up a games company on funnily enough <unk>. Ballgames the time if you recall those days assistant feature phones but they're coming to markets mostly from manufacturers like nokia for example of course based here in finland and of course never snow app stores. Nothing like you would need to distribute this job based gangs through. Carriers was very different at that time. But that's how book started. He founded the company almost exactly at the finding the dot com bubble burst onto members financing available so we basically like financed it bites doing work for hire work and then on the side be developed our own. Ip and our own games. I think miller able cut deals with most of the european carriers in big some of the us based carriers and then a massive amount of these jobs based phone scam the market and actually make some money on the company started to grow and back in two thousand four. We sold our company to company each chocolate. Which will say followed. By game industry legend strip wilkinson funded by sequoia on inclined burke in on the joined forces to them and then over time. The company grew to like four hundred people so relatively sizable game. Developers confident. I would call that down. Nba in guessing entrepreneurship and management learned. Lots of lessons. What were the key lessons that you learn positive and negative all combine the time at both digital chocolate and your company that was acquired by digital chocolate. What were the things that it installed in you that you brought with you into super cell and what were some other things that you reacted to a reacted against when the about how supercell would run as a company that they could've kept and what i learned that all domestic. It's all about the people and digital chocolate. I was very lucky to berkeley luck. Such amazing people. I kinda fought at those times that we are going to like had the best strategy the best plans the best processes in place and digital chocolate and mostly because of my doing so sexy quite a sort of a structured and also when it comes to innovation so we had pros almost forever thing if you off me like okay. How digital chocolate. Think about new games development tenure like a slight dick flex sixty slides expense. Exactly <unk> things for and they had all kinds of prose essays fall like how do they green like games the almost full we are myself and mike on leadership team over. There had a crystal ball as he kind of knew the best declare. Send a cornerstone. Humorous won't and then they put together like all kinds of control mechanisms to make sure that the company x. develops products and gains the direction. But then all of the years. I realized that there are a lot of negatives above this type of way of thinking. Because isn't the great the best creative people in the world. They don't get the feeling of ownership and oftentimes the reality is but actually the people who are best. What is best for the game for players. Those people are actually people are building the game. It's bill leadership. The people like me. And all the years. I realized our job as leaders. They should enable people to do their work better. We'll try to control the spent so much time carring the best people in the world also digital trump anything about why on earth tried to control them by. Don't do trust them to do the best thing. One of the things that made me fully realize this at some point. I start to look back with. Okay let's look at the heat gains but our company has pulled out early sort of a coma nominate these gangs. One is that may have really amazing people and raised themes it'd behind the games but interestingly the other thing was that most of these gangs some had nothing to do with all of these fantastic pros instead had besides the usual story was just need into anything else for these guys do their sunbury their on during the corner of the office and they were just doing whatever they want to do. And there's some flying under radar so to speak and then the next thing you know. This amazing game comes out. And then i start seeing whoa that. These amazing games may come out because of me or <unk>. together they come out despite the spiteful things

One is that may have really amazing people and raised themes it'd behind the games but interestingly the other thing was that most of these gangs some had nothing to do with all of these fantastic pros instead had besides the usual story was just need into anything else for these guys do their sunbury their on during the corner of the office and they were just doing whatever they want to do. And there's some flying under radar so to speak and then the next thing you know. This amazing game comes out. And then i start seeing whoa that.

In 2018 she ran across the entire length of New Zealand in 50 days, all while making stops to talk with people about her past experience in a relationship that involved domestic violence. It's part of her campaign called Sisu, not Silence. So what does she think about this idea that once you start talking about cease to it's no longer see Sue? No. Now that sounds like fight Club for the movie.

But she says that sees who is complex and sometimes a double edged sword. Roman shots. The German born writer, there is a paradoxical quality to see soon. Too much strength and resilience might lead you to accept things that you shouldn't. I sometimes wonder in Finland that this season is the regular nous to accept hardship, coldness. Rain, sleet. It also has caused some sort of collective. It's the obedience of the lambs. You know what I mean? You know season might be misused some sort of Prozac way have to take it because we can fake it. Prozac or not, something seems to be working. The UN's World Happiness report has ranked Finland the happiest country in the world for three years in a row. Many factors help explain this, like Finland, stable democracy and low levels of corruption and inequity. But Amelia lot, he says. Happiness isn't quite the right word for it. I think the Finnish happiness is closer to contentment. It's not the yea but it's more like you know. Like sisu itself..

I went exactly to the unit that studied urban planning urban studies communities and besides that The field of Fuser's bodies will entering Finland. At the time circa. You grew up in. Helsinki fins are well known for having strong bond with nature in the more than fifty percents of your country. Area is under forest land. What is that human nature relationship that you have grown to know as a fan? Growing UP IN HELSINKI ACTUALLY. Naser is really important for us. Finns it is something very embedded in our personalities even in our soul so it is sometimes called as our religion so we want to have nature around us whether we are living in city or in the countryside. So we need these Release Naira relation to nature and the natural environment all the time so We are lucky because our cities are always surrounded by a lot of nature so it means a lot. So where does that human nature relationship that you find here? In Finland that is so hard to find elsewhere. I think it is The respect for nature on the time. Let's take an example Muncie area for example and then dairy Sablan that the trees are cut down and new buildings are being built. There is strong resistance from citizens citizens residents. They know that they need this kind of connection to nature solve. They want to conserve and preserve nature as much as possible. Helsinki is growing in developing new public infrastructure particularly in Syrian areas of the city. This is a challenge when we think about the future of the cultural aspects that are linked to people relationship with nature. What are some examples of developments? He Ain't Helsinki in which you have seen. There may be some resistance towards development in order to preserve natural areas. I think this resistance to every act soon to try to remove nature or of further away is the mainstream really In Finland and in Helsinki area we are lucky because the land area is quite large so we can have both built environment and the natural environment in balance together in the same city and in Finland. Of course the climate is rather harsh. Sometimes in the winter we get snow. Even here in Helsinki and then we also have these tragedies of a cross country skiing. So in the core of Helsinki City there is this phenomenon called skiing urbanism. That means that people want to start skiing right after of their door and they enter the nature. That's even possible. You can make it compatible with city structure. How do you in the course of development? How do you see? Helsinki has changed. Because you have lived here for. How long have you lived in Helsinki? Now I was born in Helsinki and I'm now sixty six years old so I've lived all my life here and I've been following the growth of course population. Crows is happening. All the time and physical built environment is changing but not radically. I would say that Helsinki city has managed succeeded. Not Spoiling the landscape. Urban landscape be the high rise skyscrapers et Cetera or trying to a construct buildings. That are alienating people I think it is very liveable city and if you look at the statistics. International Statistics Helsinki has been rated among the most livable cities in the world. And that is exactly because of the scale. Human scale citizens are taking into consideration circa. Do you have worked at the crossroads of futures in city planning applying what is called systematic futures thinking for those listening who don't have the background on futures research. How do you define systematic futures thinking in? Why's that important? It is actually very exciting to know that. Futures Research is a discipline. It is an academic field and at the core of these academic field is systematic feuds thinking so at the University of Georgia we have International Masters Program and even doctoral program in Futures Studies. Systematic feud says thinking is the starting point there are specific broaches specific methods that are being applied in this field and what it means systematic. It means that we really whenever we are studying the future of cities. Let's say we always have systems view. We are not looking only at housing or only transportation. That happens inside city. We are looking at the whole system cities as a system and then another thing that is important criteria is that we have a long term view. He and the long term view doesn't mean only ten or twenty years. It could even mean one hundred years. We should have this. Long-term you systems view looking holistically at the topic that we are studying and using systematically different methods that have been developed for example. So-called Millennium Project has a methods toolbox that consists of thirty different methods and also the Phoenix Society for future. Studies has recently published a book that covers more than twenty different methods. That can be used in future research and talking about these methods. What are some of those tools that you have used the have given the most interesting results like for example? What about weak signals? Yes that's one very interesting. mess Look at the week's signals but before going league signals I would like to emphasize. Is that urban studies and futures studies are very closely related because when we con plan and construct cities they are meant to survive for many centuries even so this kind of long term. Planning long-term horizon is already embedded in urban planning and studies but we can enrich urban studies when we introduce different message from feuds studies. So we sing. Now's is part of the first phase that we do when we start a project. It's called Horizon. Scanning we look at Feuds signals seeing mouse of Jane. The strongest signals are mega trends. We look at Mega trends success. Climate change population grows et Cetera. But then we can also have a look at weeks signals and we sing is a sign of an emerging Isuzu Finoman. It can be very much in the marginal. It's not visible even on unless you look very carefully but it is important and interesting in a sense that if one of these weeks thing nose starts to strengthen itself then if we have early on idea what it can be rea- have sort of competitive so that the reason behind this method of we sing now and tally in one of the research projects we had we started by looking at zing now specifically of course. We have to bear in mind all the time. Those global mega trends. They are not going anywhere. They are there but it is not enough to look at the mega trends. We have to look at medium sized Trans and also this week's mouse. And how can someone train to see her pinpoint those weak signals in an everyday life there are specific means and tools that we can try to strengthen this kind of capacity first of all you have to identify weeks he knows and but those are not easy to identify. Now that's the most challenging part. They can go missed neglected ignored. And that is because if you look at only those mainstream things that are happening if you don't chump out of the box and if you don't use your Berry Berry Farrell reason. It is difficult to identify weeks. Nas using the very feral visa means that you are looking not where you are normally looking but in the marginals it can be something that you notice. When you are walking on the street you'll see your small sign or a small special bootie for some new things or it can be something that you hear from one of your friends or colleagues that they have seen somewhere but it is something that is not yet in the mainstream or something that is known so if you ask people do you know about this phenomenon. It should be something that not everybody knows about it. I can give you one example when we think about cities. And let's take Helsinki City as an example. Let's say fifteen years ago. There was not a single Vegan restaurant in the city. So veganism started to grow when we restaurants were opened and that was of course because there was demand some people changed their lifestyles and they not only vegetarian but Do the extreme form beads veganism. And now when we look at the cityscape we can easily find more than five Vegan restaurants in the city centre so that is a phenomenon that started somewhere at some point. It was not even known what we eat. Some people didn't know and now it has become not yet a trend but almost trained and and this is where you really have to pay attention to see whether this very small signs do have potential to become a dominant trends like in the case of vagueness exactly and if you if you have identified we sing. Now's and if you think that those phenomenon are something that are desirable then developing cities of course then it is wise to find out measures how to how to strengthen that phenomen actually. I could tell another example over week thing now that was actually established in in in housing again. This kind of a bottom up activities citizens like to invent things. They like to do activities fall themselves. Basically this kind of restaurant. Dave start it in Helsinki one day Anybody good open up. A restaurant bake or Kook something and go to the street or from their flat. Open the window sale outside that was something revolutionary and it hadn't happened before and then it was like becoming very popular so that also sign over vehic. Seeing now that actually was strengthened. When you look at Finland how do you compare phenomena and urban issues? What is your view? When you compare Helsinki for example with other model cities Helsinki has some special qualities..
