Abstract [en]

STOCKHOLM Roofscape Revisited is the vision of a vertical densification and continuation of the 19th century city. A translation that negotiates the historicity of Stockholm´s cityscape with a contemporary approach, drawing on the existing while projecting forward.

Starting from the specific characteristics of  each building that I´ve worked with, the continuation materializes through vertical additions that aim at being playful amplifications of each building´s stylistic language, adhering to the past wile suggesting something new.

 

THE PROJECT deals with our relation to the architecture of the 19th century city as a central bearer of western history and identity. It investigates the possibility of negotiating the formal diversity and richness of Stockholms historicistic and eclectic styles with a contemporary approach that uses the dreamscapes and fictional imagery from to the world of comics and film, as reference and speculative tool. 

Abstract [sv]

STOCKHOLM Roofscape Revisited är en vision om Stockholms fortsatta tillväxt och förtätning. En strategi som använder Stockholms stadssiluett och stenstadens arkitektoniska formrikedom som utgångspunkt för en vertikal förtätning av staden, genom tillbyggnader som utgör ett eko av Stockholms sekelskiftsarkitektur.

Förslaget arbetar med ett scenario där fem byggnader runt Danderydsplan från kvarteren, Sädesärlan, Vakteln, Tallkotten, Näktergalen och Domherren, har byggts till med fem våningar. Tillbyggnaderna kan ses som samtida översättningar av byggnaden på vilken de star. En fortsättning som lyfter fram och förstärker specifika detaljer och formmässiga aspekter av ursprunget. Resultatet är tillbyggnader som å ena sidan utgör ett brott med det befintliga, å andra sidan är i tydlig dialog med den historiistiska kontext som stenstaden utgör.
