Stockholm is a city of many layers and has been transformed quite radically over the last century from a small compact core into a modern metropolitan area. It continues to grow rapidly, and continues to grapple with the attendant problems of managing the pressures on the transportation systems and land development.
This conference will focus on urban design solutions and proposals past present and future, while acknowledging the architecture that has enriched and ennobled the city and the landscape. —Peter Jurmala, ark SAR/MSA, AIA
