White Arkitekter awarded WAFX Prize for Södra Skanstull

White Arkitekter is the winner of the WAFX Prize in the ageing and health category for the new masterplan for Södra Skanstull.

The WAFX Prize, which part of the World Architectural Festival’s 10th anniversary celebrations, is awarded to future projects that identify and take on key challenges that urban designers and architects will need to address over the next 10 years.

Located in south Stockholm, the focal point of the scheme Södra Skanstull is a new diagonal boulevard for pedestrians and cyclists, which makes use of an old railway route and improves public movement through the area.

The judges highlighted that White’s proposal shows how creating walkability is at the heart of building a people centred sustainable city of the future.
