Architecture Projects: Skeppsbron highlights the artistic methods and visionary ideas of eight Stockholm-based architects and studios to propose new possibilities for Skeppsbron—a historically significant inner-city waterfront site stretching across Gamla Stan, at the heart of the Swedish capital.

Presenting speculative drawings, models and written narratives by AT–HH, Esencial – Carmen Izquierdo, Elizabeth B. Hatz, Hermansson Hiller Lundberg, OKK+, Krupinski/Krupinska, Tor Lindstrand, and Nilsson Rahm, these eight visions consider the ways that contested urban sites can be approached as architectural, symbolic, and public landscapes. Together they celebrate the architect’s capacity to address the city as a layered, multifaceted environment capable of absorbing unexpected, and often radical, representational ideas.

Architecture Projects
Architecture Projects is a rapid-response platform for architects to engage with the city without constraint, responding to broader discussions in which architecture has a central role. The project offers space for architects and practices of differing size and experience to be visionary: to speculate, consider, and imagine the role of the architectural project.

Boxen at ArkDes
Boxen is a platform for fast-changing, experimental projects at ArkDes, the Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design. It provides space for alternative voices to inspire discussions about architecture, design, and their relationship to society by promoting radical and responsive installations, exhibitions, events and dialogues by and between architects, designers, and thinkers. Designed by the emerging architecture studio Dehlin Brattgård, Boxen opened in 2018.

Architecture Projects: Skeppsbron (Arkitekturvisioner: Skeppsbron) is curated by James Taylor-Foster, Curator of Contemporary Architecture and Design at ArkDes. The exhibition scenography is designed by Erik Törnkvist (ETAT ARKITEKTER).
