Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)

The transformation of the Cable Factory in Helsinki and the subsequent consensus on the importance of "culture" are shown to have influenced the planning of Suvilahti. The transformation is playing an important part in the large-scale planning project to redevelop the old industrial harbour in Kalasatama. The changes in the nature of planning are analysed under the concept of cultural governmentality
