NEW NEIGHBOURHOODS IN STOCKHOLM
Drifting through the middle-class.
1 November - 5 November 2010
Research: In this assignment you will work in groups and research new neighbourhoods around Stockholm. Your task is to arrange a field trip to one of four residential areas in Stockholm. Find out as much as you can about the respective area, its history, political background, relation to context and link this discussion to actual observations on site. Make your presentations in relationship to different scales, from overarching visions to the smallest details. Try to create an interesting narrative. Your subjective reflections as individuals and as a group is more relevant than the telling of an “objective” story. The underlying question being: What is the stuff contemporary cities are made of?
