Abstract: All around Stockholm, housing is under construction. But the theme is not housing - it is variation. Varied facades, varied roofscapes, to create variation along the streets. I propose that there is a safety in monotony - the kind that is lacking on the housing market. Anonymity can be a sign that the sender had you in mind, rather than themselves; this was the best we could do, therefore we repeated it over and over again, implying there is a ”we” and not an ”I” behind it all. This that is provided for you - for example a home - is not something you must earn, it can be taken for granted, by you and everyone else. Nya Hjorthagen is an alternative proposal for the site of Norra Djurgårdsstaden.
