Future Ruins


The urban landscape is constantly changing and what was thriving with commerce and life 10 years ago might be a dead corner today. We call these places ruins. In all cities there are empty shops and abandoned shopping centres where no one seems to find a great solution. The enormous international online market has given clients a whole new range of accessible products from smaller brands to established companies. How can cities compete with this?

But with the speed our world is transforming it could be interesting to get ahead of these impacts and try to understand what buildings and institutions will be ruins in 10 years time? Will we need physical stores at all? Will there still be a need for tank stations and airports? Will all harbours be relocating? Do our churches have a future?

The workshop is led by architect Jenny Grettve. She runs the Space Activation Studio ZeroPrint. They both have a broad background and have worked with large international city planning projects, landscape design, interiors, fashion, art and installations. The studio is since very recently based in Malmö but work with many projects abroad.
