Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm, Sweden (2004-16): Located in what had been a dilapidated industrial area close to Stockholm city center, Hammarby Sjöstad was built as a comprehensive infrastructural project with sustainable alternatives for water, energy, and waste management. The district, comprising over 300 acres around the shores of Lake Hammarby, is home to some 25,000 people. The block pattern is based on the traditional urban fabric of Stockholm while the architecture is decidedly modern.
The purpose of investigating this precedent was to interest the students in sustainable features they might incorporate into their own designs, both for Paradise as a whole and for their individual buildings.
