Södertälje: en ingång till avväxt : ett undersökande formgivningsscenario som visualiserar en övergång (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The project is an attempt to explore the concept of degrowth and its implications on the municipality of Södertälje, Sweden. Degrowth is brought as a critique of the dominant ideology of taken-for-granted economic growth and its inherent over-exploitation of resources. It is advanced as the new agenda for a different society and seeks to reduce its metabolism. A voluntary degrowth starts at the political level with a series of policies and regulations that eventually lead to a radical transformation of the urban fabric, structures, programmes and lifestyles. Therefore the project aims at visualising the transition from a growth-based society to one that favours environmental and social well-being over economic growth. Food production is brought in as the first agent of change, but other types of production come in thereafter. Three preferred areas have been chosen to illustrate the changes: an improved waterfront catalyzed by a food hub, a reconfigured city centre and a motor-oriented industrial area metamorphosed into a complex mix of housing and productive spaces.
