S. Svensson & Dzenis Dzihic

"The main issue of the project is to create a sustainable city that promotes human presence and activity. For a productive and healthy city, we believe that human presence and activity is necessary, as well as a strong interconnection with nature. The answer is thus a green urban area that has qualities that allow people to interact with each other and with nature, for an exchange that both can benefit from. Ecological, social, health-related, economic and historical aspects are all interwoven in the concept of the new productive city – the “Root City”."
