NORD Architects has released designs for a new Marine Education Centre in Malmö, . The Copenhagen-based practice, awarded the commission through an invited competition, hopes to “blur the distinction between architecture and landscape” with a facility that helps users gain a “deeper understanding of marine life.”

“With the changing climate, rising oceans and increased severity of cloudbursts, there is a need more than ever to understand the profound influence that marine life and the oceans have on our lives”, says Johannes Molander Pedersen, partner at NORD Architects.

Stortorget is one of the largest squares in Sweden and dates from the 16th century. Today it is an urban space that lost its old significance. LAND Arkitektur, Urban Design, and Marjamaa designed the new square for the city of Malmö. More images and architect’s description after the break.

Passive Houses / Kjellgren Kaminsky

In the spring of this year, will receive a series of passive houses designed by Kjellgren Kaminsky in collaboration with the local builder Hölleviksnäs förvaltning.  The winning proposal included 4 apartments where the units could be combined with a small store or office, a public micro park or roof top greenery.  “Architecturally we aim to create a small scale and diverse formal language, in harmony with both the surrounding houses and the future tenants,” explained the architects.

More about the homes after the break.
