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.
At Linnékvarteren in Uppsala, next to the Linnaeus Botanical Garden, we will develop new homes for Tobin Properties. The existing buildings are characterized by varied architecture and will be carefully converted to new apartments.

Swedish Design Moves
We participated in the exhibition Swedish Design Moves at Tessin Palace during Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017.
The exhibition was arranged by VisitSweden and curated by Form Us With Love.

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.
New extension to the Old Court House in Ystad
Petra Gipp Arkitektur participated in a competition for a new extension to the Old Court House in Ystad, arranged by Ystad municipality.
Petra Gipp writes about Markuskyrkan by Sigurd Lewerentz in the new publication Reminiscence.
” Markuskyrkans kontext består av en låg förortsbebyggelse och en orörd natur där den kraftfulla skulpturala tegelvolymen skapar tydliga inre och yttre rum. Murarnas massiva materialitet står i kontrast till de ljusa skira björkarna, de enskilda tegelstenarna vävs samman med naturen…”
Best wishes for the holiday season!
During 2016 we worked all over Sweden, we basked in sun and architecture at the biennale in Venice and built us our very own photo studio. We have been awarded with prestigius prizes, worked with phenomenal people and cast 103 models. In 2017, we will cast poetry and prose.
