Tensta Museum’s branch: A walk around the district Glömmingegränd with Ylva Larsson
Join us for a walk around the quarter lead by the architect and project manager Ylva Larsson. The day’s focus is the public project that occurred here from 1989 to 1995, when Loggia Arkitekter AB, commissioned by the public AB Familjebostäders, cooperated with the residents.
Seven blocks with 960 households were included when Ylva Larsson and her co-workers worked on the spot in a continuous dialogue with people, adults as well as children, with backgrounds from all over the world. All languages were working languages, and the work started from the everyday life of the area.
Cooperation was also practised through locally formulated surveys which up to 70 percent of residents responded to. The architects also co-worked with the tenants’ organisation, the municipal social institution, local administration, and the housing office. The Glömmingegränd district was transformed into a new community with shops and flats that were adjusted to suit the needs of the tenants.
Meeting point: The entrance of Women’s Center at Tensta-Hjulsta, Glömmingegränd 31
The program is part of Tensta Museum’s branch at ArkDes within the framework of the exhibition Public Luxury. At the Tensta Museum’s branch, the cooperative projects at Glömmingegränd are visualised with a presentation by Aktion arkiv, formed by the architects and scholars Helena Mattsson, Meike Schalk, and Sara Brolund de Carvalho.
