Stockholm on the Move Ideas, visions and challenges for a city in transition

Stockholm on the Move examinins, experiments and asks questions about the development and transition of the city of Stockholm. What is Stockholm in a local, regional or global context? How do infrastructure, construction, environment and culture interact with one another? What kind of society are we building for our future generations? Stockholm on the Move is laboratory in which a number of different people have the ability to meet in an experimental environment, through exhibitions, debates and seminars – in Stockholm and around the world.

A holistic approach

Stockholm on the Move started in 2010 in collaboration with the Royal Institute of Technology and many other stakeholders.

Stockholm on the Move explores and tries new ideas and asks questions about how Stockholm will develop. It’s about spotting systems and changing perspectives. What is Stockholm in a local, regional or global context? How do infrastructure, construction interact with the natural environmental and with social and cultural life? What kind of society we are building for future generations?

Stockholm on the Move is a laboratory where many actors can come together in an experimental environment, by means of exhibitions, debates and seminars – in Stockholm and elsewhere in the world.

Starting point:

Since the early 2000s Färgfabriken has worked experimentally and transboundary with urban planning, urban development and social issues, locally, regionally and internationally. With Stockholm on the Move Färgfabriken wants to contribute to a wider array of perspectives on community development and infrastructure, and to target a broad audience – everyone from Stockholm – while creating opportunities for experts and policymakers to meet in new ways.

The Stockholm region is urban, suburban and rural. What synergies can be found in the relationships between these different types of places? How are they interconnected? Which are the dormant assets? What synergies can be found? We need strategies for creating more flexible cities and infrastructure systems – nobody knows exactly what the future holds.

The first exhibition in the context of Stockholm on the Move took place between November 22, 2012 – March 24, 2013 and was accompanied by an extensive program of conferences, seminars and workshops. The exhibition contained, among other things, an historical overview, international examples, a summary of current and planned infrastructure projects and five different scenarios for the Stockholm region’s future. By means of architecture, design, urban planning, film, art and sound the visitors were given the opportunity to experience, react and become involved in the Stockholm region’s development. 


The catalogue for Stockholm on the Move was released in conjunction with the opening of the exhibition on November 22 2012.

Graphic design by the London-based art director / designer Johanna Bonnevier  who also developed the graphic identity for the exhibition.

The catalog is in Swedish.
