The Bo01 housing expo area, in Malmös Western Harbour, is one of the biggest and most ambitious projects in Europe for sustainable urban development. An old industrial site was to be transformed into a diversified inner city environment with the aid of good architecture and environmental initiatives. Support from the EU and from the Swedish Government, through local investment grants, made possible a number of applications and experiments, which would otherwise have been out of the question.

This anthology summarises experiences and lessons learned from the Bo01 environmental projects, based on the researchers evaluations. It also provides glimpses of other parts of Bo01, which might be useful to local authority practitioners and decision-makers, consulting firms, construction and housing companies and the general reader.
