Abstract [en]

Densification of the urban structure is a hot topic in urban development, but densification is almost absent as a strategy in rural settlements. This project studies densification in a rural settlement in a Nordic context by using the "dense and low-rise" design strategy and the concept of linear cities. Is linearity the key to rural densification? The concepts are tested on the small town of Kimito in south-western Finland.
