Malmo. Old town.

From the railway station, past St. Peter’s church, through to the main square and then the tinier one with all the cafes, and finally to the other side with the cemetery.

Malmo. Rosengard.

A part of the million houses programme of the Swedish government in the 1960s the high rise housing block is now an arrival city for migrants and refugees, and we were told, has a nasty reputation in the country as a hot bed of violence. We had a middle eastern lunch at ‘Yalla Trappa’ the women’s collective working in the neighbourhood, spoke to a planner who was trying to integrate it into the city through an image makeover and intervening with garden and infrastructure, and walked around the new public spaces designed by the girls for their own use and the house shops that line the public square with lights that change colour.

Malmo. Augestenborg.

The older neighbourhood of 50s and 60s housing is revived by inserting an open storm water drainage system that takes earlier asphalted surfaces in backyards and school yards and turns them into a network of water bodies and lawns as a water harvesting system and a public space. Besides organising this the Green Roof Institute grows plants and trees of different landscapes on the roofs of the neighbourhood homes and makes green walls in stark surfaces.

Brunnshog. North east of Lund. Wee walked through the new city district that is to emerge here around new scientific facilities. One of them is built (Max IV) sand more will come. There is to be housing, a science village and a technology park with farmlands and urban farming integrated. A Tarkovsky (from Sacrifice) landscape waiting to be transformed. We were shown the traces of future tram lines, public spaces and roads.
