Visiondivision Proposes Pedestrian Promenade Beneath Stockholm Bridge

With minimal intervention, Swedish architecture firm visiondivision claims that the underused structure beneath Stockholm’s Tranebergsbron bridge could be transformed into a pedestrian walkway and informal cinema. If built, this proposal would not only remove pedestrians from the dismal walking space provided alongside the bridge’s bustling car lanes, but it would also dramatically shorten the walking distance between the city island of Kungsholmen and western suburb of Bromma.

Subterranean Concrete Orgy / Toki Drobnjakovic and Per Sundberg

The Subterranean Concrete Orgy by Toki Drobnjakovic and Per Sundberg (Per & Toki) is a reinvention of the "infamous" Blue Star building in Stockholm. The designers, looking for a new studio and office space for Studioverket, have collaborated with concrete producer Butong to realize a space of "homogenous diversity" by using a new type of concrete sealed air bubble casting. By incorporating new design features and in reinventing some of the existing, the basement space has been transformed from pornography shop to elegant studio defined by a series of unique interventions.

"Marievik 15" Competition Entry / Louis Paillard Architects

Louis Paillard Architects' proposal for Marievik, a site south west of Sweden's capital, is an attempt to condense 65,000 square metres of housing, retail, restaurants and a school into just 12,000 square metres of available space through "six iconic objects." According to the architects, Stockholm is a city built "by public spaces, shared spaces, [and] parks and gardens", which led to their design "twisting itself around the void."
