Check out this urban development for Lund, by a few students at Lund University. The project proposes the reinvigoration of the urban area by reusing older buildings, removing unused ones, as well as adding some new buildings, aimed at encouraging activity and removing barriers. Take a look at the rest of the project.

We head back to the University of Lund to explore the work of “Made to Measure” by Haydar Alward and Mikael Pettersso in their exploration of a sports complex. Their second place project is a truly rich and intriguing contained sports complex. However for a first we actually have a professor’s response to their design proposal. Check it out after the jump!

The students of the Lund Technical College of Sweden were given the challenge to design and create a geometrical installation to inhabit an empty space. Robert Janson, and his fellow classmates, chose to use plastic carrier bags to create their delicate structure. The final design was simple and delicate, as the bags explode into the space and dance against the light. They approached architecture not to create space, but to inhabit space.

Everyone may diss on Detroit for being run down, but this project provides a solution for a few of the cities problems.

Adjoining the iconic Michigan Central Station, the project uses the amazing architecture left over, as well as re-connects the project to nearby Roosevelt park.
