Malmö. Situated by the outer ringroad, and the railway,
the location is central, both in a local and global context.

EDGE TYPOLOGY
Edges are established in order to highlight the inherent, but
challenged natural qualities at the site. Increasing the pres-
ence of nature by densification of typologies. The work on
establishing, or finding, these edges lead to the development
of a zoning map deciding where, and how to densify.
