We have been invited to produce feedback on the guidelines for architectural quality, ‘Arkitektur Stockholm’, recently put forward by the City of Stockholm.

At Work With Svensk Standard
We were recently invited by Testbedstudio and Economy to participate in the At Work With residency programme within the Nordic Pavilion at the International Architecture Biennale in Venice. Fabulous, we thought! The At Work With project was conceived of as a kind of complement and counterpoint to the main – and rather controversial – Stay […]

Pallet palace place space
About a month ago, we were asked by the Cities the magazine people if we could design a small exhibition space for them. They were trying to get accepted into an event held by the European Year of Creativity and needed a proposal for an exhibition space that showed that they meant business. They got […]
I was recently told by a friend that there existed a large telephone tower made of steel, (kind of like a square Eiffel tower) in Stockholm during the first half of the 20th century and after a short google run, this is what i found: Apparently it was built in 1887, at a time when […]
PYRRA – Aquatic center in Ängelholm
Proposal by Ludvig Netré and Markus Wagner. En 20 meter hög pyramidformad limträkonstruktion placeras på en 70×70 meter stort fundament. Programmets olika delar avgränsas genom att placeras i boxar eller genom en 1,2 meter höjdskillnad. Höjdskillnaden ger en topografi där simbassängerna är nedsänkta i förhållande till resten av markplan. Tre större boxar definierar interiören. En putsad […]
We’re watching you
A new Centre for Architecture & Design in Stockholm Small building = Less permanent exhibitions = Less maintenance costs = More money to temporary exhibitions In 2002, due to mold infestation, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Stockholm had to close down its recently completed building. This left the institution homeless and as a result […]
Back at CeBit, part 2
The TV! team travels to Hannover and Europes largest fair grounds, to document the exhibition space produced for Telenor.
Back at CeBit, part 1
The CeBit fair in Hannover, is Europe’s largest electronics fair and a strange and chaotic place. At a total of 496 000 square meters of indoor space (roughly the size of 70 full sized soccer fields) it is vast and the 4300 exhibitors form a baffling mass of structures, signs, sounds, displays, suits, ties, businessmen […]
The architecture of Sir Ken Adam
Perhaps the greatest architect ever, Sir Ken Adam is little known compared to the images of his work. Being the creator of the “war-room” scenography from Dr. Stranglove and virtually all James Bond sets from Dr. No up untill the late 70’s (including the pinacle of bond-villain-lairs in “The spy who loved me”) , his […]

Competition entry for a performing arts center in Taipei.Margus in collaboration with Visiondivision, www.visiondivision.com This is a powerful energy generating machine on the outside with a sensual, organic inside that transcends the visitors from the bustling city to a serene world of the performing arts. One of the positive aspects of raising the building is that it creates […]
Bostäder i Kistahöjden
Examensarbete av Markus Wagner Kistahöjden är ett berg i norra Kista, som ligger i norra delen av Stockholms kommun. Idag är det planerat för en tunnel genom berget som kopplar samman en nyplanerad del av Kista med Akalla i nordväst. Istället för tunnel spränger man i det här förslaget en skåra i berget och bygger bostäder längs […]
Monument No. 5, lost public art competition
As foam masses upon the surface of the fountain at Sergels Torg, clouds form and rise slowly into the air, loosely encircling the obelisk. Light shatters upon the 80,000 crystal prisms of Kristallvertikalaccent, which becomes enveloped in a ﬁeld of rising clouds. In a space composed of hard edges and glass surfaces, of exposed concrete and […]

Vad hände egentligen med framtiden?
Utmattade av 24-timmarsjobbande och (åtminstånde en utav dem) nedslagna av det brutala motståndet i att försöka vara enkel, så söker sig Svensk Standard ut på internet och finner italienska webbsidor med passion för framtiden, som den var förr i tiden… Och vi längtar tillbaka.
