Orminge, Stockholm

It's here. I don't know much about it, though Jakob said an acquaintance of his who lived/lives there said it was a much better place to live in than it is to look at. Car-free living.

Enskede, Stockholm (2)

I visited Enskede recently in the company of my former PhD student Ann Maudsley and her partner Jakob Weinert, and my current PhD student/colleague Victoria Kolankiewicz. We took in quite a few internal reserves there, perhaps not all those on the plan but a significant sample. They were well-used (it was a Saturday, the weather fairly mild) and very varied in form and style. This one is a playground, obviously popular with at least a small coterie of local children. The low fences of the surrounding properties is very interesting too.

Jakob explained the above sign indicates that the space is owned and operated by local government.

Kvitterkroken is the name of the path that runs through this space and may also be the name of the space, it's hard to be sure.
