How to go from an area of exclusion... ... to an area of inclusion?
Landing in Rosengård.
Rosengårds fältet and the
adjacent Inre Ringvägen
are defining elements in
the landscape of Rosengård.
They divide a mostly-European
southern Rosengård from a
mostly middle Eastern center;
the road divides (an evacuates)
Rosengård from Malmö. ice
However, the ra
every border has the potential
of becoming a bridge.
Land of opportunity.
Rosengård is a place for departure:
few people want to arrive in it.
This situation makes Rosengård a
place disconnected from life
in Malmö and Sweden.
The treasure map
By proposing an Urban Life Corridor,
a set of activities and spaces
is arranged in the “border zone”.
The corridor aims to connect
different geographic areas in
and around the community,
giving people a new way to approach
the urban landscape, allowing growing up here
different human groups to
express themselves and conform a
cultural blending with
ultimately unexpected results.
The spaces in between.
The left illustration is defined by the
interstitial spaces: the mostly un-used
zones in this part in Rosengård.
By introducing new activities
in a non-linear arrange (shown by co-
lour) here and
these interstitial areas acquire now
a new meaning as new focal points.
Painting with light.
People’s movement across space
shows new points of tension (knots)
in areas that were formerly transitions
between more intense places (such as
Herrgården and the mosque).
It is here that
urban life is generated.
