Acapella Village explores culturally and ecologically sustainable architecture of tourist dwelling to build future practical, professional and theoretical know-how suitable for regional policy-making and commercial applications. The proposal features an extensive design, planning, business and construction program based on international and cross-disciplinary research, which will be carried out as multiple projects. The planning and initiation of the projects is enabled by the University of Lapland Strategic Funding (50.000 €) in 2011-2012.
