Jury motivation:
With the architecture programme, Linköping has created a pedagogical and concrete tool to disseminate the values of the inner city and fill them with sustainability and quality.The objective is for each inner city project to describe its architectural idea and interact with and contribute to the surrounding city. The comprehensible programme’s premise is that urban construction consists of continuous street networks, squares and parks as well as buildings. It includes nine principles that will make the architecture relevant, robust and usable, in which vegetation and water form part of the urban environment. The architectural programme is clearly linked to municipal tools for controlling development, such as plans, building permits and land allocation agreements. The city’s cultural historical identity-bearing buildings are highlighted in the visual material and provide an understanding of the city’s values and how they should be managed in the decision-making processes.

Jury motivation:
A new station for high-speed trains enables the expansion of the city centre to encompass Munksjön. The framework programme for south Munksjön consolidates “City Vision 2.0” from 2010 with an in-depth overview plan that defines the goals for the architecture and sustainability. A first step in the implementation of the framework programme is the transformation of the Munksjö factory area into a mixed-use city. The city planning strategy involves developing peripheral industrial areas comprising housing, offices and businesses and making the beaches accessible to all the inhabitants of Jönköping. The working method is characterised by determination, perseverance and an ability to create consensus among many stakeholders around the long-term vision supported by concrete urban development visualisation. It strengthens the position of the municipality in negotiations with the state and the region, enabling them to procure the maximum benefit from a future investment in the Gothia Line high-speed railway and provides efficacy and consistency for the work on the zoning plan.

Jury motivation:
Citizens’ dialogue, additional housing and refurbished parks and squares have turned around the negative development in the socially deprived Million Programme area of Backa in north-western Gothenburg. The City Planning Office, in collaboration with the district council, the public housing company Framtiden and other stakeholders have spearheaded an extensive transformation in partnership with residents, the police, associations, organisations and property owners. Opening up a local meeting place for dialogue has played a central role in anchoring the extensive changes. The square’s small-scale structure has been reinforced and its role as a traffic-free meeting area has been emphasised. The urban planning strategy also entails that over-dimensioned traffic areas are developed comprising city apartment buildings in semi-open blocks which provide the area with a welcoming and urban character, while the older buildings contribute to the totality. An urban park and a cultural centre constitute a meeting point and are important additions to the project.

Jury motivation:
Based on local sharing economy and social responsibility, Sege Park is the premise for an innovative model for sustainable urban construction under development. The starting point is a hospital in Kirseberg in north-east Malmö with detached rows of buildings in a 1930s park that will be supplemented. The aim of the zoning plan is to demonstrate how residents can contribute to reducing climate emissions, supported by social innovations, digitalisation and cutting-edge technology. Sege Park is Malmö’s platform for urban innovation. Via an open competition, solutions for increased sharing of the city’s resources are being developed. The ideas are refined in dialogue with the developers about land allocation agreements. Some of the sub-goals in the planning programme include sharing apps, storm water circulation and non-toxic construction. An important goal is to develop models for the production of homes with lower housing costs, thus creating a social mix.
