In 2017-2018, Petra Gipp is chairman of Swedish Architects Academy of Architecture.

New book about Bruksgården
A new publication about the extensive conversion of Bruksgården between 2010 – 2016. Photographer Jens Lindhe has followed the work during the whole period and his photographs, together with photographs by Mattias Linbäck and text by Petra Gipp and Mårten Castenfors, gives a full portrayal of the big project.
It may seem trivial, but art needs a home and a home needs its art – otherwise it will be nothing of anything.
– Mårten Castenfors
We’re building a home for a family in Fjällbacka, a building made of cast in place concrete.
Finnish Architectural Review
In the latest issue of Finnish Architectural Review, Petra Gipp writes about architecture, body, memory and time.
” A story takes shape where the memory of a time is portrayed, where time is interwoven into the body and space.”
Woodland Sweden in Tokyo
Petra Gipp Arkitektur participates with the project Stadshagen in the exhibition Woodland Sweden in Tokyo at Archi-Depot museum. The event is hosted by Architects Sweden with support from the Embassy of Sweden in Tokyo.
PART – reopening
PART have moved in to our office at Åsögatan. The artwork, a collaboration between composer Kim Hedås and architect Petra Gipp, will be reopened next week. The work is a part of an artistic investigation that intends to explore how dimensions of architecture/art and music/sound may be widened as more layers are added to the totality. In PART, sound and structure interact to create new sequences that together build a polyphonically shifting play.

Conversion and new building in Uppsala – invited competition
The old courthouse in Uppsala will be transformed into housing and this is our suggestion. Small alterations to the original building and an additional building create new space for people to come together.
We were invited to participate in the competition, arranged by Municipality of Uppsala.
