Abstract [en]

King City is a new citycenter in the expanding Kungens Kurva area in the southern part of Stockholm that combines shopping, service, dwellings and workplaces into a coherent urban environment. The project deals with the expanding city of Stockholm, where areas that before where seen as external, now form the basis of a polycentric city where the divide between innercity and suburbia is disolving.The Kungens Kurva area is today the result of “laissez-faire” planing principles that have allowed big retail companies to establish themself in the area. Since the ninities when the neoliberal ideology prevailed as the new guiding principle for Swedens economy, Kungens Kurva, as well as the retailmarket, has been expanding in a accelerating paste. King City is a architectural answer that anticipates our future city, driven by corporate power and diminishing public planning.

Abstract [sv]

King City är ett nytt stadsdelsscentrum i det expanderande Kungens Kurva-området i södra Stockholm. Det nya centrumet sammanför handel, service och bostäder till en sammanhållen urban miljö. Kungens Kurva-området, som tidigare sågs som externt, håller nu på att bilda ett av centrumen i den polycentrisk storstad, där uppdelningen mellan innerstad och förort allmer minskar i betydelse. Kungens Kurva-området är idag resultatet av olika kortsiktiga planeringsstrategier som sedan 1960-talet bjudit in stora varukedjor att etablera sig i området. 

Däribland IKEA. Sedan 1990-talet när den nyliberala ekonomin på allvar gjorde sitt intåg i Sverige, har Kungens Kurva tillsammans med hela detaljhandeln, expanderat i accelererande fart.

King City är ett arkitektoniskt förslag som förutser vår framtida stad, driven av privata intressen och krympande offentliga resurser.
