I started at the office back in 1967 and I am still very much involved with the business. I like it, because I find it so incredibly fun to design and create good projects for the people! It’s mostly housing projects and urban planning for my part.

Among the projects carried out through the years there are a few that mirrors my views on architecture and urban planning a bit more than others, that I would like to mention:
Grimsta Village in Upplands Väsby in the 1970’s was a protest project, making a stand against the development, which made the officials go to through the roof – but not the politicians… Trädskolan neighbourhood in Enskede, supplementary building from the 80’s, and the Terra Nova project in Visby, confronting current trends in zoning and traffic segregation, the Stumholm building in Karlskrona for Bo 93, that proved it’s possible to raise the architectural quality without raising the costs, Hedvigsholmen in Marstrand, a project adapted for the small city, student accomodation in Bosön, that showed how houses can be built right in the middle of the blueberry bushes, the arches of the St Erik district, with their strong Stockholm character, Garden Cities in Ekland, Tullinge, and other places, Lomma Harbour project outside of Malmö, Swedens first small town environment in a zoning scale that had been prohibited for more than a century, Birgitta’s Gardens in Vadstena, urban single family houses, Hammarängen in Mariefred, new additions to the historical city center, under construction, etc. I have also participated in the public debate with several articles and lectures and not the least with the alternative proposal New View on Slussen, the seeds of which unfortunately seems to have been spilled…
