Conceptual design by LandProp Services
You can get furnishing for your home from IKEA. Heck, you can get an entire house from IKEA, but the giant Swedish company ain't done yet: it wants to build an entire neighborhood!
The people who run the Swedish home-furnishings behemoth are launching a bold push into the business of designing, building and operating entire urban neighbourhoods. Where once they placed a couch in a living room, the Swedes now want to place you and 6,000 neighbours into a neglected corner of your city, design an entire urban world around you, and Ikea-ize your lives. Their bold, high-concept notion of an urban ’hood could be an important solution to the housing-supply shortages that plague many large cities – but it could take some getting used to.
So Neatoramanauts, would you live in IKEA-land?
