Ny på forumet (nåja)

Hej.
Jag heter Anders och har lurkat i den här tråden ett tag men skaffade först idag ett konto.
Jag bor på Gärdet i Stockholm (alldeles i närheten av Svea pinne) och är, liksom många andra, rätt irriterade på det skansenkomplex som Stockholm lider av.
Jag tänkte iaf bara säga hej, och också säga att jag precis skrev ett blogginlägg om just höjdskräcken:

Hjärtligt välkommen till forumet!
Hehe, Skansenkomplexet. Vi har alla hört det någon gång. :D
Jag ska ta mig en titt på din blogg.

Hehe, the Skansen complex, we've all heard it once or twice. :D
I'm going to take a look at your blog.

Ha det så roligt här!
Have fun here!
Oh yeah, sorry about that.
English. I keep my posts here to english in the future..

By the way, the lack of progress of Svea Torn amazes me. I see it twice a day, going to and from work and it's practically been at a stand still for months....

Kista isn't 1km from Helenelund's Pendelstation. Might be a kilometer from the subway station, but the new hotel-tower at KistaMässan will be maybe four fifths of the way to Helenelund!
IMO Kista is the best location for a cluster: good communications, little-to-no nimby resistance (KST is generally very liked by us locals) and plenty of lots to build on/redevelop. Going for a cluster in the Inner City is doomed from the start, so places like Kista or Globen is where it's at.
I think you are right although I very much would like scrapers in the city to.
Perhaps if we get started in Kista some of the NIMBYS will see that there wont be brimstone falling from the sky if you happen to build something taller than 5 floors..
I get so annoyed on some of my neigbhours here at "Gärdet" which oppose any kind of new construction. There were protests against the pathetic little 16 floor building called "Svea Torn". Myself, living very close to this so called "tower" are just annoyed that they didnt go higher...
And imagine the immense unused fields here! If anyone suggests anything there's an outcry. But if you actually go down there you see that a maximum of perhaps 10-15% of the space is actually used...

@khaan - welcome. Nice name, real name or Khaaan!?
It's from the star trek movie "The Wrath of Khan" yes :). Just added an A.
My real name is Anders.

I took some pictures when I took a walk today to illustrate my point.
This is the building a lot of people critizised because it would stand out to much.
I fail to see this really..

Thank you so much khaan for the pictures. Marvelous pictures, indeed. :applause:

Btw, you must live close to CSN judging by the last picture which I think is Löjtnantsgatan.
The ptoto is taken from a street called "Starrängsringen".

I live at "Strindbergsgatan" so it's pretty close.

Article about planned development of Norra Station, etc: http://www.svd.se/dynamiskt/stockholm24/did_16870507.asp
Good and bad.

First, a laugh. The manhattan of Stockholm, and then, 10 story buildings?
Give me a break..

Wolodarski is stuck in the homogeneous city thoughts. His response to criticism of Stockholm being a small town rather than a bit city is to increase the floors from 7 to 10. Why can't he see that it's the homogeneity that is the problem?
Build seven floors for all I care, as long as 2 or 3 buildings in the area are 40 or 50 floors high.. I find the homogeneous areas of Hammarby sjöstad and similar areas rather boring. It's all buildings of the same height and of the same look. No fun. And the new areas seem to be the same, just a couple of floors higher.
What I DO like though is the idea in itself. Its good to build on this area, and I also really like the idea of roof gardens.
I also think it's a bit sad that all of the old buildings are being torn down. Interesting buildings can be saved and used for other purposes as long as you don't keep to much. But keeping some of the old buildings breaks the homogeneity of the area and make it more interesting.

Also great to hear that they are going to start to build in the Värtan area. I hope that the tall building in front of Hotel Ariadne has not been scrapped...

I'm in so deep I'm only seeing fishes that glow in the dark. :D

How do we get the ball rolling? a webiste, a group on Facebook, or? We could start with a sticky-thread in the skybar...
I can set up a facebook group, what should we call it?

The subway will propably be driverless in the future:

article DN
Cool :)
I went on a driverless bus at Aichi World Expo in japan back in 2005.
Worked without a hinch.
We also rode on the Yurikamome driverless monorail out to the man made island Odaiba:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yurikamome
Though, at our trip out to the island, the train actually stopped for about 10 minutes (lot of information in the loudspeakers.. all in japanese ;)
The trip back went without any problems though.

Great initative, hope all forumers concerned will sign it. Takes about 20 secs.
Next time you sign something, read what it's about first ;)

(That is, don't sign this one, its directly opposed to what we want...)

Svd's article about driverless trains. Really cool!! :D

SL vill ha t-bana utan tågförare

En tunnelbana utan förare kan bli verklighet i Stockholm redan 2013. Röda linjens signalsystem ska bytas ut och det nya kommer att vara datorstyrt.

Trenden går mot att automatisera kollektivtrafiken i Europa. I städer som Paris, Köpenhamn och Helsingfors finns ingen människa bakom spakarna i tunnelbanan. Allt sköts i stället av tekniken.

Nu ska den röda linjens signalsystem bytas ut och de nya tågen ska kunna köras utan en människa på plats.

- Vi vill ha ett signalsystem som möjliggör förarlösa tåg, men det innebär inte att det införs direkt 2013 när systemet är klart, säger Johan von Schantz, teknisk direktör vid Storstockholms Lokaltrafik.

I den nya tunnelbanan kommer sjukskriven eller dyr personal inte att kunna hindra att extratåg tas i bruk. I framtiden kan datorn även göra avståndet kortare mellan tågen.

- Det innebär fler tåg med bättre turtäthet. Vi blir flexiblare när vi på kort varsel kan ta in fler tunnelbanetåg.

Att höra en mänsklig röst i högtalaren eller att bara skymta en blåklädd förare skapar trygghet på perrongen. Men resenärerna saknar inte chaufförer i de kundundersökningar som har gjorts i de städer som redan infört förarlösa tåg.

- Det viktiga är att det inte är helt tomt på människor i tunnelbanan. Med teknikens hjälp blir personalen tillgänglig för resenärerna, i stället för att vara inlåsta i förarhytten.

I det nya digitala systemet kommer sensorer att övervaka dörrarna och se till så att ingen fastnar.

Hur kan man lita på att inte bli klämd?

- Dörrarna kommer att vara lika känsliga som hissdörrar och reagera direkt om något kommer emellan. Det finns en mängd tekniska lösningar som helt enkelt gör det omöjligt, säger Johan von Schantz .

Den mänskliga kontakten och vem som håller uppsikt över spåren när förarna försvinner, är något som kommer att undersökas. Som modell står de städer som redan i dag kör tunnelbanetåg utan chaufförer.

- Vi har en dialog med flera av de förarlösa tunnelbaneprojekt som redan finns och lär oss om misslyckanden, risker och vad som varit bra.

Lagom till invigningen av den röda linjens signalsystem 2013 är det dags för en upprustning av den blå tunnelbanelinjens signalsystem.

- Teknikutvecklingen går jättesnabbt och det är inte omöjligt att blå linjen får ett liknande signalsystem som den röda.

Nice. I especially like the part with more trains more often. We often have situations where we have really long trains going rather seldom. This way we can have shorter trains going more often!

Jag fick hem min nya kamera igår kväll (en Nikon D40x) så jag var naturligtvis tvungen att ta mig ut o testa lite idag... :)
Jag tog ett par bilder på de två nya JM-husen på gärdet:

Jag har inte riktigt lärt mig kameran än men det blev skapliga bilder iaf:

Pics from the new housing development called "Gärdesbacken" on Gärdet in Stockholm.

Have we showed pictures of Telefonplan here before by the way? I'm living next to this area. The red brickhouse in the picture will have apartments with 4 m to the ceiling.

16 floors. Always something.... :)

I felt for taking a break from work!... So I googled for new pictures of Liljeholmskajen (I'm thinking of moving there)...





Now we are (slowly) getting somewhere!
One of those buildings slightly resemble the Montevideo tower in Rotterdam by the way:

This is actually a lake and not the ocean so the answer is no:)
It has connections with the sea, but I believe it would be fairly simple to build barriers on those connections if the need arise.

What do you mean? Lakes won´t rise due to climate change?
No, of course they wont.
But if the lakes have connections (rivers or streams) with the sea they might.
What I meant was that if that is the case, building barriers on those connections will solve the problem

You in Stockholm, did you see ABC news? And the old man in his 90´s or something complaining about the change of Stockholm city. He thought the new Klara hotel was to tall and feared that it would mean that other buildings might get even higher in the city if klara hotel was built so high. Apparently he was one of the men behind the change of the city in the 60´s and he thinks that the change going on in the city of Stockholm today is bigger than what happened in the 60´s.
Surley it´s not, almost everything in the old klara quarters dissapeared then, it´s not like everything in the city is dissapearing now :) Some higher building and that´s a good thing in my opinion.
Can I see it online somewhere?
To be completely honest... What an asshole. In the 60:s they tore down beatiful classic buildings in very good shape to build boring and ugly gray lowrise buildings all over the place. Now he protests about that they finally DO something about the destruction that was done in the 60:s?
