Towards the 'People's Home': First Housing Districts in Stockholm
The label «People’s home» coined by Swedish Social-Democrats expresses the first step towards the 1930s, 40s and early 50s, which would make Sweden a model for war-ravaged Europe. But “people” and “home” attracted planners, architects, co-operatives and politicians well before. The aim of this article is to trace the origins of their social concerns in first initiatives of land policies and mass-housing by discussing spatial experiments with housing districts on Stockholm’s fringe in the 1910s and 20s.
