Com­pe­ti­tion pro­po­sal
Lomma Mu­ni­ci­pa­lity

Gräns­land brings Bjär­red and Bor­geby clo­ser to­get­her and al­lows the two com­mu­ni­ties to meet in an elong­a­ted park that con­nects the sur­rounding green areas and forms the back­bone of the new district. The pro­po­sal is ba­sed on the di­vi­sion of the ex­is­ting fi­elds and thus spans an arc between past and pre­sent, between agra­rian and know­ledge so­ci­ety. The plan ta­kes hold of the si­te’s ex­is­ting pecu­li­a­ri­ties and cre­a­tes a clear, ea­sily le­gible and dense structure that con­nects to Bjär­red, Bor­geby and sur­rounding green structu­res in a na­tu­ral way that pro­mo­tes mo­ve­ments and ex­changes between the new district and its sur­roundings. Its com­pact cha­rac­ter me­ans that the area north of Do­me­delja Mosse can be left com­ple­tely un­de­ve­lo­ped. In do­ing this, we pro­tect va­lu­able agricul­tural land at the same time as the land can serve as a re­serve for pos­sible fu­ture expansion.
