This is Alice Franzon, our new colleague, here since August.
You are warmly welcome Alice, nice to have you here!
Last week we had two teams from the office running Stafesten, Sweden’s biggest relay race! A perfect way to start the autumn and contribute to UNICEF’s work for creating a better world for all children.
We are happy that two of our projects have been nominated for this year’s Steel Building Award by The Swedish Institute of Steel Construction. In September, the finalists will be presented in the magazine Steel Building and during Steel Building Day. Let’s cross our fingers!

Good news in time for the National holiday is that our bridge over Djurgårdsbrunnsviken has been delivered and lifted into place, and all parts seem to fit nice together!
Last week we have been in Trelleborg, together with our team members Sydväst landscape architects and Cowi, and presented our proposal for the development of Sjöstaden, the western part of city’s harbour. Our team’s proposal is one of three entries in a parallel assignment organized by Trelleborg municipality, aiming to find feasible and qualitative solutions for developing the city when the port operations move to the east and large central and near-sea areas are vacated. The proposals will be exhibited under the summer 2019 on Algatan 5 in Trelleborg. Read more about the competition here and check the proposals here!
This year’s Stockholms Arkitektförenings Vårrevy took place at Färgfabriken on May 23, and offered an evening filled with short inspirational lectures and reviews of interesting projects and initiatives from the Stockholm area. As one of the speakers, our CEO Henrik Rundquist talked about the expansion of Stockholm’s Metro. The evening continued with the awarding ceremony for the Guldrummet prize, followed by refreshments and mingle. Thanks for an interesting and enjoyable evening!
We are proud to present our colleague Elsa Wifstrand, as one of the key note speakers at World Tunnel Congress, an annual event about tunnelling, engineering and innovation, that recently took place in Naples, Italy. Elsa, was, with her experience from working with the new Metro, and in her role as one of the founders of Think Deep Sweden, invited to talk about how the tradition of art in the Metro in Stockholm, now is continuing in our work with the new Yellow Metro Line. ”Art and Architecture, a continuing journey in the developement of the yellow metro line in Stockholm”, is the title of the lecture, which seems to have engaged many of the listeners!
Our bridge over Husarviken is one of the finalists in 2019 Stockholm Building of the year award.
Comment by the jury: “A bridge that is not only beautiful, it also connects the city and gives us new patterns of movement. This bridge is a small addition that gives effect. The asymmetric expression that comes from the function gives a strong and interesting form.”
We´d be delighted if you´d vote for us!
