Landmark Project in Sweden

Today’s Architecture


 The softly shaped building symbolizes the human values characterizing the revival of Vällingby Parkstad in Stockholm, Sweden.Danish architect 3XN has won the Landmark Project in Sweden, the construction is planned to begin 2011.

 It was important for us to create a contrast to the traditional and more angular buildings surrounding the site. This building will add human values and scale to the area – and at the same time it will be a significant landmark for the Vällingby Parkstad, says Jan Ammundsen, Partner and Head of Competition at 3XN




The building’s curved design embraces the area and the lively shaped balconies opens up the structure towards the surroundings thus raising the park up in the air. The dense city structure at the base adds activity at eye level and life thrives on active roof tops and flowering balconies.
