The symposium aims to explore how we (as citizens) feel about the quantity and quality of public buildings currently considered in the predominantly private Älvstaden / RiverCity Gothenburg urban development projects (homes, hotels, offices, retail).

If there's simply no money for more and better public buildings, should we consider ideas for adding value to private buildings through public program? Would this require changes in how we perceive, expect, or legally allow private and public spaces to coexist in the city?

Using their ongoing hybrid building projects and studies of 5 public building types (bathhouse, library, museum, performing arts center, sportshall) 20 graduate-level architecture students and teachers will curate an open symposium concerning the future of public buildings in Gothenburg.

Let's debate!
