Workshop with Newly Arrived Architects in Sweden

Welcome to Open Office Start up meeting at Färgfabriken in Liljeholmen.

Newly arrived architects in sweden (NAAIS) is glad to invite you to the "open office" first meeting, in collaboration with Färgfabriken.

There will be a full day workshop at Färgfabriken on the 14 january, at 9 – 16.

Let us meet, Swedish established and newly arrived architects, planners and artists, to set the agenda for our collective space/office.

After a quick introduction on the background of the initiative, we will do the following:

An activity to get to know each other's individual competence and background.

- Have a quick design project competition (for learning purpose) after a visit to a nearby site.

- Lunch

- Brainstorm and set goals and objectives for upcoming events.

Open Office will host a series of sessions at Färgfabriken during the spring 2017.

Exhibition: Latent City - Den latenta staden

Exhibition: Latent City  - Den latenta staden

May 19-26 at Färgfabriken, fourth-year architecture students in KTH Studio 7 (Elizabeth Hatz and Peter Lynch, faculty) will exhibit and discuss design proposals for two large sites in the Stockholm metro area.

One site, Lövholmen (where Färgfabriken is located), the last zone of heavy industry in the central city, plays an important role in Stockholm’s urban image. The area is slated for high-density redevelopment. Transformation of this historic, complex area should benefit from local character, topography, public space, sustainability, and a careful relationship of buildings to the ground. Students working here focused on questions of adaptive re-use and historical memory, drawing upon existing conditions to uncover Lövholmen’s latent civic character.

The other site, a strip of unbuilt land near Solna town center, is a “blind spot” in the urban fabric. It encompasses a forgotten highway ramp, temporary student housing, an abandoned quarry, and a former farmstead. Here, students focused on integration of the site into the surrounding city—clarification of its latent urban role and urban image. In both study areas students were asked to consider their site, first and foremost, as fertile shared land, not as abstract real estate. How, in a very specific way, could these two places realize their organic and communal potential? As a design method, students drew out urban orders, spatial structures, architectural solutions, and ecosystems from existing conditions. An appropriate urban design approach can be imagined as latent in a place, already existing in potential. Uncovering it requires sensitivity and invention. This is the latent city – den latenta staden.

Public exhibition at Färgfabriken, Thursday May 19 - Thursday May 26 (regular opening hours)

The works are also presented at a public seminar at Färgfabriken, Thursday May 26, 18:00-20:00
