UngBo 12

Posted on December 27, 2011


Hello, Lumesians! Hope you all are having wonderful holidays! Season’s greetings from LUMES Channel!

And, here, I introduce some local project, UngBo 12, carrying out in Malmö. Since we took a course ‘Urban systems and Sustainability’ by Mr.Anderberg, I am very much interested in those urban planning projects of Malmö and Copenhagen. As we learned, Malmö is experiencing quite drastic change in terms of urban sprawl since 1960-70s. I guess UngBo 12 is a project which represents one of the alternatives to solve housing problems in Malmö.

Basically, UngBo 12 is a kind of Competition. People between the age of 18 and 30 enter the competition to submit their ideas of how to make best possible use of new and existing buildings. The competition has two categories: To build something New and To Re-build something Existing.

UngBo12 is organized by the city of Malmö and supported by many partners, mostly housing companies such as MKB Fastighets AB and PEAB, etc .

On the website, you can check those ideas submitted by many young and talented people. Also, you can support their ideas by sharing their projects on Facebook or Twitter. The website is available in English, too. Hurrah!
