Abstract [en]

The article deals with the background and situation for Swedish residential areas constructed during the "record years", i.e. 1961-1975, when more than 900.000 flats in multi-family-houses were built. The flats had generally good standards and space and also well studied and functioning plans, but some of the areas were criticized because of poor out-door environments, as well as monotonous and large scale buildings. Through the years investments have been made, both on national and local levels, for upgrading the environments but also to some extent for rebuilding and renovating the buildings.
