Kjellander Sjöberg Commoning Kits

Urban commons, meeting places and sharing

What do we need to build apart from housing?

What creates an identity, local involvement and a sense of belonging in an urban neighbourhood?

Location: Malmö, Sweden
Dates: 6 Sep – 10 Oct

The exhibition Commoning Kits at Form/Design Center in Malmö presents 13 proposals of how new meeting places can be created to generate and kick-start qualitative development and community in an urban district.

”We are in an urgent need of meeting places. As people, as a society and as a culture. Where we can participate, talk, learn more about each other and create mutual values that we call urban life and identity. Something shared. Meeting places where we come together to create a city, and in extension – a society.” From the catalogue Commoning Kits.

Commoning Kits consists of a dialogue process and an investigation presenting innovative prototypes – toolkits – designed to be used in different settings and cities, based on local needs. The exhibition highlights elements that are vital for the creation of a vibrant city – such as farming, recreation, local amenities, mobility, sports, local democracy and play.
Behind the projects are some of the most creative architectural offices in the Nordic region:

Arrhov Frick
Eriksen Skajaa
Förstberg Ling
In Praise of Shadows
Krupinski/Krupinska
Lenschow & Pihlmann
Leth & Gori
Marge
Nilson Rahm
Norell/Rodhe
Rintala Eggertson
Sted
Vardehaugen + Ahaa

The exhibition explores how new types of co-use, urban commons and sharing economies can be created and utilized as forces for greater democratic participation, livability and inclusion.

As new residential areas are planned and realized in Sweden, there is a growing awareness that new components and perspectives need to be developed if we are to present a rich and full urban environment with inherent variation, inviting urban spaces and social possibilities – a city that accommodates spaces for meetings, culture, spontaneity and local initiatives.

What meeting places are needed and which ones are missing? What makes an urban space or an urban environment open and inviting? Should those be planned from above or grass-root initiated? Who is responsible for the financing and implementation? New models for co-financing, shared risk-taking and long-term management are ready to be tested. Where processes and initiatives to develop urban areas can take place in collaboration with residents, co-ops, local businesses and the general public.

Commoning Kits takes as its point of departure Sege Park – an area planned as a new meeting hub in Malmö, and as a showcase for social and ecological sustainability in urban planning.

The exhibition presents a number of opportunities to participate in public Think Tanks and talks about the city.

The dialogue and exhibition stem from a collaboration between Kjellander Sjöberg, Form/Design Center and Malmö City.

KS wins a competition in Helsingborg, Sweden

KS has, together with Veidekke won a competition for a housing block in Oceanhamnen, new town district in Helsingborg.
“The proposal takes vision of sustainability for future housing to a new level” describes the jury.

The block, designed by Kjellander Sjöberg, consists of around 55 apartments where flexibility, sustainability and programming have been the leading factors of the design process. The eco-labeled buildings in CLT and recycled bricks connect to the surroundings of the harbour in both configuration and program.

Focus has also been on social sustainability. On the smaller scale of each individual apartment, smart and flexible solutions can vary the accommodation character based on changing conditions and future needs. On the large scale, the buildings connect and invite activity and movement, as well as inspire social initiative and further integration using meeting places and open facilities.

Commoning Kits
– urban commons, meeting spaces and sharing

What creates identity, local involvement and a sense of belonging in an urban district?

As new housing is being planned and developed throughout Sweden, there is a growing insight regarding the lack of various components and approaches needed to offer a viable city with an interesting mixture, democratic urban places and social possibilities – with spaces for meeting, culture, recreation, spontaneity and flourishment.

Think Tank 017 by Kjellander Sjöberg Arkitekter

This Think Tank investigates how new forms of utilization, urban commons and shared economy can be established in existing districts and development areas. What meeting spaces do we need and which ones are missing? What makes an urban space open or an urban environment democratic and inviting? Should they be planned from above or grass-root initiated, if the latter, who is responsible for the financing and implementation?

The point of departure for our exploration is Sege Park, which will be a new hub in Malmö with the ambition to become a showcase for social and sustainable urban development. The discussion and co-creation is a collaboration between Malmö Form/Design Center, Kjellander Sjöberg and Malmö City.

Think Tank 017 is a first step in Kjellander Sjöberg’s investigation of the city, which will result in the exhibition Commoning Kits at Malmö Form/Design Center in September 2017. The exhibition will offer further discussions and gather innovative prototypes – creating tool sets for urban commons presented by 15 invited Nordic architect offices.

Welcome to a discussion about Commoning Kits!
