Team MARELD and Kjellgren Kaminsky won third prize in the two-step international competition regarding a new forum building and development of the church-hill around the Strängnäs Cathedral. The competition received 97 commissions and five were selected for the second stage.
Our proposal is a gentle architectural approach with great respect for the Cathedral and the important heritage setting. The new forum and the park pavilion and the overall composition, activates the great potential in the lush and green western hillside. It connects socially and interacts with the surroundings, the Cathedral and the town of Strängnäs.
