Housing by international architects - and frontrunner in climate initiatives
Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has pledged that Sweden will be Europe’s most sustainable country. In Stockholm you will see how authorities and stakeholders in the construction industry have worked towards a more climate friendly environment or the last 10-12 years, from mobility to energy and waste solutions. A genuine housing boom has taken place in at least eight urban areas around the centre, with 6-8,000 people relocating to these districts each month.
Examples of what you can see and learn about in Stockholm:
Urban development and residential building in the new areas, including Norra Djurgårdsstaden, an environmentally-friendly urban district with world-class credentials
Climate-friendly building: residential buildings manufactured from wood (including high-rise)
Flood protection and city planning: transformation of sluices from busy traffic hubs to recreational urban spaces
Infrastructure and mobility: Stockholm Central Station
Hammerby Sjöstad, from green roofs to rainwater harvesting
Residential building projects by international star architects such as BIG and OMA, meet the developer behind
Guided tours from leading Swedish architectural studios, for example Windgårdhs and VERA arkitekter
Number of days: 2-3 days
