Like many European urban districts, the Swedish city of Gothenburg is in the process of transforming old industrial areas along its waterfront into mixed-use public realms. Against the backdrop of urban regeneration in Gothenburg, Danish firm Henning Larsen has unveiled a masterplan for the Lindholmen urban district, which following its completion in 2025, will offer a diverse environment for engagement between students, entrepreneurs, and public citizens. Encompassing the district around Chalmers University and Lindholmen Science Park, Henning Larsen’s proposal will activate undefined spaces between existing buildings, while using the nearby Gothia River as an asset to create a unique identity for the area. As part of the plan, a public transportation hub will be established to connect trams and bus lines to a future cable car spanning the river, enhancing the connectivity and appeal of the district.
