The Ung Bo 12 competition is geared towards starting the debate about the housing shortage for young people in Malmo, Sweden . The aim of the competition is to discuss the problem, but also to suggest smart solutions. The city, in conjunction with industry, has invited those between the age of 18 and 30 to enter a competition where they encourage them to submit their ideas of how to make best possible use of new and existing buildings by turning them into homes for young people. The competition runs in 10 different Malmo communities and is judged monthly by some members of industry and government.
Laura Wascher‘s proposal is for the area in Kirseberg called Sege Park and will be voted on online until April 30, 2012. Sege Park is one of Malmö’s greenest, cleanest and calmest areas – that is why Laura beliefs it needs more life, more inhabitants and more diversity. The contribution shows a design proposal for a lively sustainable neighbourhood with over 900 apartments, mixed functions and design for humans and nature.
