My Demola Spring 2013 project: YIT our digital living. We worked in a group of 5 students from TUT and UTA. Our solution is a mobile application.

Our partner is Demola Tampere and YIT. At the final stage, YIT decided to give us a reward for this creative and ambitious project. We also had a stand in the New Factory Openning event in summer 2013.
 
I am glad to work with my teammates. Unfortunately, I can't develop this concept further with my architectural background.
