Design Challenge:

In the eastern parts of Malmö, we plan to build Törnrosen Tower. Our desire is that Törnrosen Tower will represent openness, and with the more than 20-storey high structure we intend to create a new landmark. The new project should form a natural meeting place for residents in the multicultural district of Rosengård. In addition to being able to offer housing and a breathtaking view of the region, we hope that the richly developed ground floor will serve as a growth area for increased complexity and urbanity in the local area.

Submission Requirements:

Physical submission of company information, registration, CVs, portfolio, and general competition idea
