Through a detailed exploration of Mandaworks’ projects, Arfalk’s presentation will contribute to the ongoing conversation on city-planning and the role of qualitative public-space design and conceptual narratives in contemporary urban development.

The lecture aims to reveal thoughts, reflections and perspectives on Scandinavia’s interest in urban design and how the role of urban development in community formation have generated a number of competitions, public debates, and design commissions focused on the sustainable city.
