“This design proposal for the Nobel Museum in Stockholm is to study how large scale public buildings in a city center can personify the complexity of its monumental urban context. This project tries to fuse the external and internal structures of the building, letting its layers be affected by the dynamic flow of people, and circulation of light on and around the site. The fusion of the internal and external is achieved through layer studies using design techniques of folding and buckling sheet material, and the subsequent evaluation of the effect of these manipulations.”

“The Dendron Research Station is set in a tropical rainforest. The site of the station is an extinct volcano with a collapsed caldera found in Papua New Guinea.
The research station aims at aiding scientists in the field of canopy research, where the work of the scientists is mainly about cataloguing existing species and discover new such for the sake of science.
Dendron is suspended in mid-air more than 45 meters up in the canopy layer of the rainforest. It utilizes the liana system found in the forest, and derives its building material and techniques from the vernacular architecture found in Papua New Guinea.”

“Next to the downhill slope in Åre we have created a university building intended to be a new campus for Mittuniversitetet. The focus of the university programs departure from the driving forces of Åre; sports, design, tourism and entrepreneurship. Since Åre is and will continue to develop as a living society year-round it is important to attract new inhabitants. A university located next to one of Åre’s best slopes, and characterized by the lifestyle associated with Åre, would be attractive to young people from across the country.”
