ATT FÖRENAS

Join Together: Relink the Cathedral Hill with the city.





Catalyst: Strangnas Cathedral sits at the highest point of the city. Marking the crossing of number of social, religious and cultural institutions. The presence of the Cathedral, symbolically and culturally, is the catalyst for the changes in the city and at the same time it mediates between the old and new.

Activity-chared Campus:  The project aim is to use landscape and exterior program as a catalyst charged with activity and rethinks the flow between interior and exterior spaces.

Inside - Out: Working with the pre-existing buildings follows the process of analyzing their potential and current usage. The intervention is mainly focused on adapting the spaces while enfolding and improving them, without changing the exterior appearance of each building. This surgical attitude follows the strategy used for the wider scale.

Center – Periphery: The project looks at the task as a process of interaction between the cathedral as a center and the surrounding buildings as periphery. The two conditions are always interacting.
The proposal is offering to decentralize the system, as a part of the natural growth of the campus.
