Exhibition – a holistic approach to the Stockholm region's opportunities and challenges.

On November 22nd Stockholm on the Move – the exhibition – opened! The grand hall of Färgfabriken was crowded with curios and enthusiastic inhabitants of the Stockholm region. Our “Reaction-space” was quickly filled with thoughts, ideas and opinions regarding the future development of the capital-city/region. The Swedish minister of Infrastructure, Catharina Elmsäter-Svärd, inagurated the exhibition together with Joachim Granit (Färgfabriken) and Göran Cars (KTH).

Stockholm on the Move run until March 24, 2013, and besides the exhibition there were several conferences and seminars held at Färgfabriken during the exhibition period. The project was continually developing with new ides and perspectives from both exhibition visitors, partners and others involved in the conferences and seminars.

A 900 kvm concentrate of the future of Stockholm

The exhibition Stockholm on the Move identified and focused on a number of issues such as urban planning, traffic flows, design, identity, environment, and political processes. I strived to create a coherent overall picture, gather the different parts of the project and present a whole, consisting of a historical background, different visions, utopias and dystopias and some of the infrastructure projects that are on-going and proposed for the region.

Stockholm on the Move is an initiative by Färgfabriken and the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, developed in conjunction with a range of partners with important roles for the infrastructure of the Stockholm region. An exhibition, with associated workshops and a seminar program, will be shown at Färgfabriken between November 22, 2012 and March 24, 2013.
