How do we explore and use the circular maneuverability within the existing frames of municipal organizations, tendering legislation, activity purposes, building sector, and geographical location? WE BUILD DENMARK, Danish Embassies in the Nordic Countries, Danske Ark, and BLOXHUB invite you to a Swedish-Danish workshop that discusses and shares inspiration on how we achieve more circularity in municipal projects without going outside the frames of a safe operation space for a municipality – and how the dialogue with private collaborators can be lifted. The workshop takes off with presentations of explorative and ambitious circular projects and programs from Denmark and Sweden. These examples will launch the discussions with the very competent participants at this workshop.
Before the workshop, you will have the opportunity to participate in a site visit. Magnus Alfredsson, the Project Director at Varvstaden, will be taking us to visit the historic Gjuteriet foundry, which is a significant symbol of Malmö’s industrial past. The building has been re-designed by Kjellander & Sjöberg Architects, and the project has brought new life to the area, resulting in a dynamic urban district. The refurbishment project prioritizes circularity, material reuse, and renewable resources. Using glulam timber and CLT, New elements integrating the existing steel frame have been added. Bricks, metal, panels, and stairs have been sourced from Varvstaden’s Material Library, giving a second life to old shipyard components.
Location: Gjuteriet, Ångfärjekajen 8, Malmö
