Designed by OOIIO Architecture [1], the Patchwork City Masterplan [2] focuses on organizing the future growth of Linkoping, a city in southern Sweden with 100,000 inhabitants. The architects were challenged to experiment and explore new ways of designing cities – with all the complexities, sustainable construction systems [3] and social cohesion aspects that a XXI st century city needs. The result is a contemporary city where the inhabitants colonize and personalize their own structure as they wish, crocheting pieces of their own city to generate a large patchwork together.
