the Bella Quarter


northmodern was also a good opportunity to show models and drawings for the new quarter that is to be built around the hotel and this exhibition venue. Called Bellakvarter, it will include housing and commercial buildings as well as public green space. Earlier plans indicated that there were to be workshops for designers and craftspeople in the area, in part to replace workshops and studios that have been lost in the centre of the city, although the latest drawings seem to give these less prominence. A pity.
