Ny arkitektur i Flängan (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Is it possible to create new architecture in an area with a strict architectural costume without making a pastiche or turning your back against the existing architecture? The village of Flängan in Bergslagen is quintessential Swedish countryside. When moving along the gravelled main road, one can not help but notice the homogenous architectural character of the village - two story wooden houses with gable roofs, red-painted facades and white corners. 

The project aims to create new architecture in such an area without being bound by the traditional formal rules of the existing houses, which is often copied to create new “contextual architecture”. 

Abstract [sv]

Är det möjligt att skapa ny arkitektur i ett område med en strikt arkitektonisk kostym utan att göra en pastisch eller vända ryggen mot den befintliga arkitekturen ? Byn Flängan i Bergslagen är emblematisk svensk landsbygd . När man rör sig längs grusvägen genom byn, kan man inte undgå att märka av områdets arkitektoniskt homogena karaktär - två våningars trähus med sadeltak, rödmålade fasader och vita knutar.

Projektet syftar till att skapa ny arkitektur i ett sådant område utan att vara bunden av de traditionella formella reglerna i befintliga hus, som ofta kopieras för att skapa nya " kontextuell arkitektur " .
