I have recently been responsible for some efforts on the theme of citizen dialogue in which interaction with the community has been intense:

  • The research project Interplace – interaction between citizen initiative and invited participation in urban planning financed by Formas 2011-2013 which was about how the society needs to change to meet citizen initiatives and vice versa.
  • The research project Urban Empowerment in Mistra Urban Futures 2010-2011 which aimed to develop knowledge of citizens participation in urban development.
  • The master course Suburbs—design & future challenges 2008-2011 in which architectural students learn codesign.
  • The citizen project New homes in Biskopsgården 2006 where a group of inhabitants were asked to come up with proposals for urban densification before the city planning office’s program for the area.
