Calling entries to design a Workshop Center in old Gamla Stan district, Stockholm

STaRT, a platform for research of architecture, has launched a competition #StockholmCall, a contest of ideas to design a Workshop Center in the ancient district of Gamla Stan, Stockholm, Sweden. Projects will be selected capable of proposing contemporary architecture visions integrated into the existing context.

The participation is open to architects and engineers, students or professionals by every part of the world that might participate alone or with a team. 

Short info

The fourteen islands on Lake Malaren that make up the city of Stockholmpreserve a seven hundred year of history that racount the story of the Swedish capital. The buildings of the late nineteenth century, the Gothic churches, parks characterize a european capital in which architecture and nature coexist in perfect balance. The metroline is a place of art: among these is the subway line where the stops become a moment to discovery the works of local artists exhibited in them. Craftsmen and designers contribute to maintain the local tradition, especially Gamla Stan, a maze of medieval streets that make up the old center. 

Stockholm Wood Factory will be built on the islet of Stadsholem to keep the cultural ferment of the entire district alive. Woodworking laboratories and exhibition areas will offer visitors a new space of interaction. An architecture that, by placing itself on a border line, becomes a connection between the town and the coast.
