MALMØ 2030

The Norra Bunkeflo area in Malmö, Sweden, can become a sustainable model example for the realization of the UN’s World Goals and how we can live up to the 2030 goals of the Paris Agreement. Based on studies on wind, weather, daylight, infrastructure, neighbors and urban nature, Norra Bunkeflo is a district that focuses on creating new relationships between nature and city, between old and new residents and between generations.

The central green corridor in our plan connects Bunkeflostrand’s nature spaces and provides room for rainwater, urban biotopes, recreational connections and green mobility. Five central urban spaces connect to the entire Bunkeflostrand and cycle paths, cloudburst channels and urban nature ensure a good connection between the neighborhoods. All housing units have access to the green and bounded living space,
where you can get to know each other and have a designated area attached to your own housing block. The plan meets the existing neighborhood south of the plot at the same building height, but increases in height towards north, which screens the area from the noise coming from the motorway, as well as it allows for south-facing roof terraces.

DIFFERENT TYPE OF CITY PLANNING
As a significant part of Malmö’s densification Norra Bunkeflostrand must be developed according to other principles than what we have seen until now at Bunkeflostrand. This provides new opportunities for a different type of urban development and at the same time creates demands on how we adapt to the existing city, its inhabitants and ideals.

We have worked to create a new modern district that goes in dialogue and engages with cultural history, the city and nature and provides new opportunities for meeting places, communities and recreational contexts for both old and new residents of Bunkeflostrand.


At the same time, we have formulated a concrete strategy for how the new district can become a sustainable model example for the realization of the UN’s SDG Goals and how we can live up to the 2030 goals of the Paris Agreement.

We have registered many fascinating contrasts on our visit to Bunkeflostrand. Contrasts between the local and the regional, between the untouched and the man-made, and between nature and industry. It is our wish that Norra Bunkeflostrand will unite these contrasts in a new vibrant urban neighborhood that will both give back to the neighbors and provide a way forward for Malmö’s continued development.

2030 NORRE BUNKEFLO
We have described three thematic approaches to the SDG Goals in Norre Bunkeflo on a general level based on our specific city plan and the area’s unique character. The three themes aim to look at concrete synergy between the many goals and sub-goals.

1 BUNKEFLOSTRAND METABOLISM
With climate change, cities are more exposed to water from the rain and the sea. At the same we are experiencing urban densification and expansion which often comes with fewer nature areas and more migrants. In Norra Bunkeflostrand, the city plan favors this by ensuring that all buildings are protected against sea level rise up to 3 meters and that rainwater is controlled via surface solutions. Centrally in the Norra

Bunkeflostrand-plan, the green corridor going from east to west will handle the rainwater by keeping it in the lowlands of the terrain and ensuring critical building and flood infrastructure. At the same time, the corridor creates space for new biodiversity, recreational functions and access to the large meadow ecosystem.

This ensures a quality of life, public health and integration between old and new city. At the same time, there is a focus on a broad understanding of resources in the district, where rainwater can be collected, comfort parameters such as wind and daylight are optimized and all homes without exception have a view and access to green environments.

2 COMMON AREAS AT BUNKEFLOSTRAND
The green transition is a common movement and many of the sustainable initiatives relate to the individual and collective behavior of urban communities. At the same time, inclusive neighborhoods where everyone can join the community are healthier and have fewer social issues. The citizens of Bunkeflostrand express a great desire for new opportunities for communities and meeting places.

Therefore, we propose that the central green area contains 5 new common areas that can be developed in dialogue with old and new residents in the area. Here you can make green transition cafes, generational gardens, eco-communities, learning rooms, healthy urban spaces and supplementary service functions in synergy with the entire Bunkeflostrand.

3 RESOURCE CITY 2030
The construction- and housing sector holds big possibilities to contribute to achieving the goals of the green transition as a very large part of the emissions, energy and resource consumption derives from it today. When we are building new housing, it is fundamentally sustainable to build densely and close to urban transport systems and integrated solutions. Furthermore, building with renewable building materials and recycle concrete, steel and brick, can get us far regarding the 2030 targets.

Therefore, it is obvious that the construction in Norra Bunkeflostrand uses upcycling and wood construction. By building in wood we can half our CO2 emissions compared to a traditional concrete construction that dominates the construction sector today. The scale of the project offers great possibilities of thinking systemically and pragmatically regarding the future construction and thereby elucidate the entire value chain’s ability to meet the future requirements for sustainable construction.
