Presenting the national winners of the Nordic Built Challenge.
Statement from the jury: Equilibrium has a clear, easy-to-grasp overall concept. The entry presents a community idea with a combination of mixed use functions. Excess building right is appointed for a new senior-housing complex. The focus of this entry is on people, and ICT-supported change management aimed at better use of the facilities and human capital
Statement from the jury: Fittja People’s Palace is the most courageous proposal in the competition. Although not innovative in any classical sense, it does represent a radical departure. The proposers dared to suggest small, but strategic, changes. The proposal adhered to the financial parameters established in the programme and thereby satisfied competition objectives.
Statement from the jury: The proposal presents great insight into sustainable planning solution for the site with a realistic approach to create a new identity for a green office park. The new developments are well defined in scale to what the site can contain in a sustainable manner.
Statement from the jury: The entry is well prepared and reflects a clear position in relation to almost all aspects of the assignment. As compared with the three other entries in Stage 2, this entry stands out in that it divides the large courtyard space into a number of smaller and consequently more urban spaces. Furthermore, the endeavour to create a lively and ‘self-grown’ exterior means that a clear distance is taken from the large-scale housing estates that Ellebo represents.
Statement from the jury: Urban Mountain stands out as a winner for two important reasons. It consistently scores above the other entries in terms of innovative solutions for sustainability and environmental strategies. And it merges architectural design and environmental strategies in a manner no other entry quite reaches.
