Swedish Design Moves: Democratic Architecture
Culture and People

As part of Swedish Design Moves New York, sthlmnyc will host four evening sessions where featured speakers and other guests explore what democratic space can be and how to create it, what tools are available and how to develop them even further.

Informal conversations with participants from both Sweden and New York will reflect on the concept of democratic space and today’s contemporary challenges. How can Swedish design thinking contribute to better democratic urban spaces globally? How can Swedish democratic processes be implemented in other cities and communities? How can the global and diverse city of New York inspire Sweden? And how can we through collaboration find creative solutions to make the built environment more sustainable and democratic?
