New Lund station area

How to expand the city and preserve the surrounding landscape?

This is the question the Lund municip­ality asked the parti­cipants of the Europan inter­na­tional compet­ition. They had to come up with ideas for creating a vibrant new neigh­bourhood in and around the new train station in the south of the city, among existing buildings, sports fields and unused indus­trial spaces.

Our project Frontside met these challenges by offering a new and recog­nisable face of the city, seen when arriving from the south – an area of urban blocks with resid­ential buildings, service centres and urban spaces, opening onto a park with a landscape of ponds and streams which collect rainwater from all over the city.
