Scandinavian conversations on the Malmö dynamics at SLU Alnarp

Last week we were revisiting the Øresund region with our mosaïc mindset and 19 architect- and landscape architect students from Bergen School of Architecture. After studying Malmö in the virtual world for two weeks, under the headlines of New Hierarchies and Imbedded Information, it was time for us and the students to enter this field of exploration, walk the streets, meet the people and hit the dynamics and the patterns that connects.... An in depth research into the imbedded information of Malmö.

On Thursday we had conversations with prof.Carola Wingren and her students from the landscape architect department at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Alnarp.

The journalist Peter Sylwan and the head of urban straties in Malmö, Johan Emanuelson, guided us through the possible future agricultural landscape and into the growing city.

Carola Wingren's master course is dealing with how Malmö can meet future challenges from sea level rise. SLU Alnarp is set in a large, old park with thousands of species plants and trees north of Malmö. We rounded up this fine day with a walk in this beautiful park.
The Malmö findings will be posted at city as biotope under the label Elasticity.
