Kiruna 4-ever
Kiruna, Northern Sweden

White arkitekter, Ghillardi + Hellsten Arkitekter, Spacescape AB, Vectura Consulting AB and Evidens BLW AB won the competition with their proposal "Kiruna 4-ever". More or less the entire town need to be moved before 2100 due to that their mines will 'eat' up the city as the ground is sinking.

Planning competition for Floda city centre won by Mandaworks and Hosper Sweden

Mandaworks and Hosper Sweden have been announced the winners of the architectural competition for the future planning of Floda’s city centre. Floda is a small community with a strong regional relationship to the city of Gothenburg. Of the 59 proposals submitted, the jury appointed ‘Down by the River’ the winner.

The award was presented at a ceremony in Lerum on Thursday, 21 February. The competition was organised by the Municipality of Lerum and Swedish Association of Architects in collaboration with Floda Torg Fastighets AB and Kusebacka Stiftelsen / Garveriet. The 59 proposals were exhibited in Floda and seen by over 700 visitors. The competition was organised to inspire new visions for the future development of central part of Floda. The intention is that the winning teams will be involved in further planning.

The gushing water from Sävelången to Säveån is the power behind Floda. A city historically formed around the water, Down by the River, recognises the force of the water in Floda and utilises the potential of future connections to focus Floda’s future on the water.

The jury said of the winning project: “Down by the River focuses on and develops Floda’s strongest qualities: water, nature and Garveriet. The public spaces along Säveån refine and develop Floda’s existing character and identity as a community around the water. The proposal’s hook is the Blue Square - an innovative reinterpretation of the square as a public space where the rushing river creates a natural spectacle all year round.”

In Down by the River, four key bridges form the starting point for four new development areas that grow from their specific contexts. In each of the development areas, the existing characters of the site are strengthened while new additions help weave together Floda’s centre.

Proposed settlements are concentrated around the river to support the new connections and bring life to Floda’s waterfront. A variety of building typologies create a mixed use centre that allows living, business and service to contribute to a vibrant downtown. Collectively, the proposed densification creates proximity between people and functions, and in turn leads to a pedestrian friendly centre and thus more sustainable community.

The jury concluded by saying: “The proposal is robust and with distinct qualities that can lead an urban transformation process with many stakeholders, consultations, and public involvement processes. The future planning process will enable the qualities of the proposal to be progressively refined.”

Flexible and sustainable competition entry selected for Helsingborg Hospital expansion

schmidt hammer lassen architects has won the competition to design the 35,000 sq m extension to the Helsingborg Hospital in the southern part of Sweden. The competition was won in cooperation with Aarhus Arkitekterne, NNE Pharmaplan and landscape architects Kragh & Berglund. The project comprises a new ward for adult psychiatry, an out-patient clinic and medical laboratories. Key to the whole design has been flexibility, a clear layout, variety, human scale, green courtyards and optimal conditions for daylight.

“We have designed a single building, whose architecture relates both to the existing hospital and the surrounding city,” explained Kasper Frandsen, Associate Partner at schmidt hammer lassen architects. “The building is expressed in one sculptural form, which houses three areas of activity: the out-patient clinic and laboratories in the lower and compact levels of the building, while the top levels containing the psychiatric ward open up to a more transparent structure.”

The building is flexible and therefore sustainable with regards to future demands for changing use and functions. It has a uniform sculptural expression, which adapts to the various functionality needs but at the same time corresponds with the scale of the surrounding buildings. The shifting and indented façade creates varying spaces and makes it possible to adapt the structure with open and closed parts depending on the functions behind it.

A hallway makes up the spine of the building and gathers together the different functions in a clear fashion. It has the double function of a dynamic urban street with a fine net of intersections, squares and views to green courtyards.

In the psychiatric ward, the emphasis is on an environment that allows for both relaxation and activities. This will have both a calming and inspiring effect on the patients, who are thereby challenged in a secure setting. The layout of the ward is clear, and the green roofs establish a distinct, undisturbed landscape. The composition of the bed wards creates sheltered, inner courtyards signalling calm and safety. From the upper levels, the patients have a panoramic view over the city and Oresund, which in turn affords plenty of daylight in the rooms.

The layout of the main functions of the building minimises walking distances, optimises daily operations and adjusts to the special needs of the different areas of activity.

“Human beings are the focal point of our approach to designing hospitals. Though we know that the buildings must support rational and efficient clinical operations, we never forget that this is all about people - about individuals with a soul and ability to feel and understand,” observed partner at schmidt hammer lassen architects, Kim Holst Jensen.

Aula Medica, Hagastaden, Stockholm

Aula Medica is a 1.000-seat auditorium, Karolinska Institutet's new lecture hall complex which enables the university to arrange major public events, such as the Nobel lectures, which attract audiences from around the world.
Wingårdh has designed the building, the form and geometry of which contrasts with the traditional low-rise brick buildings on the campus. It is situated along Solnavägen opposite the new university hospital. With its central location and geometric form, the lecture hall complex opens up the campus area to the main public thoroughfare.
An environmental programme has been produced to ensure a green build. Highly energy-efficient solutions have been devised following investigations into choices of system. For example, the carcass of the building comprises triangular elements that form an airtight, energy-lean façade.
