A design collaboration between Fors Arkitekter and Rebecka Blomqvist

Fors Blomqvist is a design collaboration founded on a shared interest in creating architecture with empathy and attention to the needs and experiences of future users, on both a spatial and urban scale. With great attention to materials and details, they challenge the boundary between modern construction methods and cultural heritage to create buildings with long-term relevance.

In 2021, Fors Blomqvist won the architectural competition Maatullin Primary School, Kindergarten & Playground with the entry The Forest Glade. Their design is centered around the idea to make the young student to feel inspired, safe and at home in their school, by breaking down the scale to smaller building blocks, and using natural materials like wood. The construction is set to be finished in 2024.
