Design Developer Competition. A study on innovation, architecture and affordable housing, Stockholm
Book chapter, 2018

In Sweden, Design-Developer (DD) competitions are used by municipalities to transfer publicly-owned land to developers, contractors and public housing companies. The procedures have no national guidelines, but are regulated locally by the municipalities through three methods: politically through land allocation policies; professionally through competition; and administratively through contracts with the winners. In this case the organisers’ two primary concerns were architecture and affordable rental housing, which establishes a key relationship between rent and income levels within the target group – young people in Stockholm
