Today we’re finally allowed to announce that Tengbom is nominated with two projects in three categories in World Architecture Festival 2016. The South Entrance in Helsingborg is nominated both in the category Transport and Small Projects, and the Temporary Market Hall on Östermalmstorg is nominated in the Shopping category.
“It’s staggering how such a, relatively, small project can make such a huge impact. The South Entrance is the answer to a few questions posed by the City of Helsingborg and ensures better safety for pedestrians, as well as better flows between the different city districts. The framing itself gives the city a new landmark, which we’re proud to be able to sign off with Tengbom”, says Patrik Ekenhill, architect in charge.
“Being nominated for WAF is incredible news. We were amazed when we learned that the Temporary Market Hall actually helped increase business – showing what good architecture can lead to – but international recognition is another proof of success, says Mark Humphreys, architect in charge.
The competition is settled in Berlin 16-18 November. Noteworthy is also that Malmö Live, project managed by Tengbom and designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen is nominated in the category Mixed Use.
