Forum Klybeck

The city takes on the future!

After one hundred and fifty years of history as an industrial area on the outskirts of the city, the Klybeck site is evolving and emerging as a realm of possibilities for the future of the city. Questions about participation, densification, permeability, mixing of housing and commerce, existing building stock, the public sphere and open space come together in a dynamic process. What does the future cityscape look like? How will urban society and urban development be combined? How can diversity be preserved and become productive? How do we plan and build our city? The Klybeck site demonstrates the future development of the city and our coexistence.
