The competition assignment involves producing artistic proposals for the stations of Haga and Korsvägen. The aim of the project is to invite the artists to influence the design of the stations, so they can contribute to shape the architectural spaces and collaborate with the architects and constructors to make the environments unique. The art is meant to be an integral part of the overall design, and not be experienced as an addition to a previously finished structure. The artistic proposal should therefore be further developed into a detailed sketch in the next phase (planning), as the basis for the production of the artistic proposal. Deadline: 21 February 2017.
