Posted: Monday, March 16, 2009 |

A winner in Stockholm‘s ambitious Slussen urban redesign competition has yet to be announced, but Bustler has already some exciting images of the currently shortlisted five proposals by internationally acclaimed architects like Sir Norman Foster, Jean Nouvel, and BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), as well as Swedish firms Nyréns Architects and Gert Wingårdh Architect.

These are the five proposals in images:

Foster/Berg gets my vote.
The curvaceous bridgescape is glorious. Press on...let parts of it be inhabited in the spirit of Rialto in Venice or Ponte Vecchio in Florence! You can do it!

Big, of course. Although their project was way better in it's last incarnation. The project seeks to make Slussen a public space in the city, a place mainly for people, not for cars, and by doing so integrates Gamla Stan and Söder seamlessly.

The Nyrén project is an obvious rip-off of the Big project, and the Wingårdh project doesn't even really show what will happen with the locks and the streets, only the new buildings that are built next to it (that might just be fault of the material presented here, though). The Foster project is horrible. The shapes of the curves are unelegant and disproportionate, and the whole project seems to lack motivation and a desire to transform the area into anything but a traffic machine. Without any additional functions, the curved pedestrian bridges will never be used much, as Slussen in this proposal is just a means of crossing the water, the fastest way to go from A to B, and therefore a completely uninteresting place to stop. Leaving the road completely exposed leaves the area just as noisy and problematic as it is today. All in all, an incredibly immature and clumsy response to the task.

Also, the Rialto, although a beautiful bridge, is an awful tourist trap, and I really don't think Stockholm wants that.

I am surprised at the lack of elegance in the Foster proposal. The word 'Contrived' comes to mind. Traffic, not people and human communication seems to be the objective.

I like Jean Nouvel best. Its intricate design - as I can see from the photos - is the one among the five that most wants me to go their and spend some quality time in that area.
