Founded in Stockholm in 1906, Tengbom is one of the world's oldest and largest architecture firms. Tengbom--founded by Swedish architect and namesake Ivar Tengbom--specializes in sustainable design in urban design, landscape architecture, interior design, and other areas. In 2015, the firm made headlines with its HSB Living Lab, a live-in modular research arena for architects and researchers working on housing solutions for the future. Starting in the first half of 2016, researchers and residents will move into the building and over the next 10 years develop innovative approaches to housing, working on everything from innovative materials to new design processes. Tengbom and cooperative housing association HSB hope this hyperfocused research effort will drive innovation in the architectural field while also acting as a prototype for future housing projects.
