    Abstract

    A new concept for housingand for housing fore-sight is introduced to discussionas a hypothesis in analogy to slow food, and as a contrast to hectic urban life. The idea of slow housing as enabler of innovations is based on preliminary results of a projectc arried out at VTT (Technical Research Centreo f Finland) in 2004–2006 studying experimental and innovative models of housing, working/production and transport (see www.vtt.fi/eko-seutu).The aim of this Eco-Regions project is to identify best practices in eco-efficient development of regions, linked with socio-culturally sustainable patterns of living. In this paper we discuss the concept of slow housing as one element contributing to pleasant living environments and with a specific connection to innovation creation.
