Sweden: Fittja People’s Palace
Fittja People’s Palace is the most courageous proposal in the competition
The project looks at the task from within: With an open transparent process with all stakeholders involved, acknowledging and using existing solutions and changes for todays needs, a sustainable renewal can be obtained. In order to go beyond the prevailing negative image of the One Million Dwellings Program, the project thoroughly studies the situation in a 12 point scheme for renewal with Fittja in focus.
For Krögarvägen 2 an over all interior renewal is suggested as well as changes in the ground floor meeting new needs for spaces for local initiatives: Tenants and rational maintenance are in focus, with the right tools and methods.

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.
