Today was the opening ceremony for Folke Bernadotte´s bridge over Djurgårdsbrunnsviken in Stockholm! His Majesty The King held an opening speech, cut the ribbon and the visitors were finally allowed to cross the bridge for the first time. We hope it will be put to good use!
In the beginning of September, we took the train to Copenhagen for for our yearly study trip. There we spent three days visiting, among other things, urban development projects, the metro system and bridges.
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!
