As part of the Steel Construction Day on October 26, The Swedish institute of Steel Construction and the steel building branch awarded Henrik Rundquist with Silverbalken, a Swedish national award for particularly prominent efforts in the development of steel construction.
Last May Mandaworks and team – &Rundquist, Lola Landscape, Ekologigruppen and Noema – participated in a fourday international design workshop and planning assignment in Norra Kymlinge, Stockholm, Sweden. Our team has been part of an exiting process, a process of producing, testing and evaluating prototypes for strongly sustainable urban districts with Norra Kymlinge as an applied example.
The workshop, organised by Vasakronan AB, had the goal to address the planning and construction of a sustainable, resilient city district that is at the forefront of innovation and development, with a vision of creating a district that in the future will be worthy of the accolade “the best city district for the world”. In a short period after the workshop we have further developed the material into a final documentation: The SUR + CITY.
In October we went for a three-day study trip to Vienna and Bratislava. We visited, among other things, new stations for rail and subway, several interesting urban development projects, and we also found time for a visit at the Spanish riding school.
This spring we competed for a new travel center and development of the area around Karlstad Central Station. Our proposal “Laga staden” was awarded with second prize.
