How sustainable is Sweden? Form Magazine visits the new green areas where the garbage dumps grow higher than the houses.

The Nordic region’s leading architecture and design magazine release the October issue, with the best of design and architecture from the Nordic countries.

Form Magazine discovers Hagastaden, the new sustainable district in Stockholm, where the waste material from three houses is enough to build one new. The magazine also examines the project Smart Energy City, where 150 Swedish households have tried the energy system of the future, as well as reviewing its owner, Svensk Form – The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design.

In addition: A critical essay about Finland’s 100-year trip as a design country, a report about the business genius Gudrun Sjödén and Lego party with star architect Bjarke Ingels. Interviews with Sweden’s leading design stars right now – including Daniel Rybakken, Luca Nichetto and the glass artist Ann Wåhlström.

Form Magazine 5/2017 is available in stores on October 10th.
