In 2012 Linköping municipality launched an international architectural competition for the development of the city centre, east of the river Stångån. Tovatt Architects & Planners + team was chosen as one among 60 registered. The brief included a new station and travel centre in Linköping. Our proposal created new strong connections from the city centre far into future unknown structures. It also let the area around Stångån retake its roll as a lively and important landscape.
