Key Swedish Property Developments – Built Environment Designs News

Architecture in Malmö

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Malmö Architecture. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Malmö buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the city. The focus is on contemporary Swedish buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

We have 1 page of Malmö Architecture selections with links to many individual project pages.
