    Urban Design In Sweden2012In: Urban Design Practice: An International Review / [ed] Sebastian Loew, London: RIBA - Royal Institute of British Architects Publishing , 2012, p. 96-112Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Urban Design Practice gives a fascinating account of the state of urban design practice across the world today. Packed with invaluable local knowledge from on-the-spot contributors, its global scope offers an armoury of background facts and figures to professionals interested in exporting their skills internationally. Along the way it reveals how urban design is practiced, identifies a multitude of key concerns and refines our understanding of what urban design (so often a nebulous concept) means.

    Aimed broadly at practitioners – masterplanners, architects, landscape architects, planners, civil engineers – and students and academics of these disciplines, twenty chapters analyse a different country’s urban design context. Fully illustrated and structured in a similar way, each chapter features a case study, general background economic statistics, and a handy ‘quick guide’ to the types of work available, the underlying legislation and tips for securing work. 

    Features chapters of the following countries: 

    Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, the Czech Republic, Dubai, Egypt, England, France, Germany, India, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Sweden and the USA.

    Livable Stockholm2018In: Community Livability: Issues and Approaches to Sustaining the Well-Being of People and Communities, Second Edition, Informa UK Limited , 2018, p. 29-43Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    There is no term for livable or livability in Swedish. However, in a study of the American/Anglo-Saxon livability concept in a Swedish (transportation) planning perspective, Moa Thunström finds it quite similar to the Swedish discourse and concept of social sustainability, although livability seems to have a more short-term and local perspective. Other commonalities with the Swedish urban planning and development discourse and practice concerns attractive cities, the need for cross-disciplinary planning processes and multilevel governance, holistic perspectives, etc. The main goals of the City of Stockholm’s Vision 2030-the citizens’ Stockholm, innovative and growing, and versatile and full of unique experiences-clearly connects to the concept of livability. The goal of Citizens’ Stockholm concerns an accessible, safe urban region with no physical or social barriers. The goal focusing on being innovative and growing stresses the need of being competitive on the global market. The last goal of Stockholm being versatile and full of unique experiences enhances Stockholm’s unique combination of top-class education and business opportunities and unspoiled nature at the doorstep that will continue to attract international visitors. The Walkable City is the popular name of the Stockholm Strategic City Plan of 2010. Stockholm’s natural and historical assets, the need for a denser city and better integration, and connection between districts are all important starting points for the city plan. The five urban development strategies of the city plan are intended to cater to a sustainable urban growth in Stockholm: continue to strengthen central Stockholm; focus on strategic nodes; connect city areas; and create a vibrant urban environment. Dialogue and collaboration are key process strategies to implement the goals of Vision 2030. In this chapter livability is discussed through an examination of urban development areas in Stockholm. A common problem in these developments is the lack of socioeconomic integration and affordable housing.

    Light Railways and Busways as Key Driver for Sustainable Urban Development The Swedish Experiences with Transit-Oriented Development (TOD)2012In: Sustaining the Metropolis: LRT and Streetcars for Super Cities, Washington, D.C: Transportation Research Board , 2012, p. 259-278, article id E-C177Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    TOD in a Swedish (European) perspective is by no means a new idea. Three cases of newer light railway and busway projects (Stockholm, Gothenbourg and Norrkoping) are explored in this article and they are seen through a historical overview of the TOD experiences in Sweden and around the world. We also investigate and draw attention to the values of placemaking and sustainable urbanism via the advantages and disadvantages of the urban and regional public transport systems and TOD principles.

    Tram and light railway as key driver for sustainable urban development: The Swedish experiences with transit-oriented development (TOD)2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sustainable urbanism and good placemaking revolve around creating and maintaining sustainable and attractive places, by reviving planning and urban design paradigms, by experimenting and innovating and by building synergies between the old and the new. The expectations for wide accessibility and networking are very high and the challenge today is to integrate and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of urban and transport systems. The transports have to fulfil the ongoing demands for enhanced efficiency, comfort, safety and speed, as well as the environmental factors in the light of global climate change and energy crisis. One accent in the last 20 years has been on transit-oriented development (TOD), compact cities and urbanity-empowering public transports like light railways or light rail transit (LRT) or bus rapid transit (BRT) with its busways as key drivers for sustainable neighbourhoods.
