The Architect Rowhouses: Brunnshög

Brunnshög is a new district in Lund's northern outskirts, marked of the large-scale research institutions ESS and MAX IV. The district is part of Lund - linked by tram to the city centre – but is also a hub for research and knowledge work with visitors and visiting researchers from all over the world.

The architect rowhouses were developed to introduce a sense of permanence and variety in a place characterized by new buildings, research and large companies. Inspiration was drawn from Dutch rowhouses as well as townhouses in Lund's inner city. The project has been initiated and carried out by Lunds municipality through the Brunnshög project under the leadership of Christian Wilke.

Unlike the procedure in a normal developer competition the municipality explicitly turned to architects. Applications were to be submitted by architects, and they needed to contain guarantees that the architects who designed the houses also followed through with the houses throughout the construction process.

The applicants were to report on the project's organization, but no specific process or funding model was prescribed. One hope was that the developer competition could lead to discoveries and perhaps even a process and a cityscape that can be developed in other places.

The rowhouses are in various stages of production and the first move-ins took place in July. In the exhibition, the winning architects present the projects, the thoughts behind, and lessons learned from the process.
