West Harbour

The West Harbour is Malmö’s most exciting area. A few decades ago this was an industrial area which today has turned into a seaside town with a sustainable holistic approach. West Harbour was created at the Bo01 housing exhibition held in Malmö in 2001 when a completely new district with exciting architecture and innovative environmental solutions was built.


Visitors flock here from all over the world, not least to see Malmö’s landmark, Santiago Calatrava’s Turning Torso, which with its 190 meters screws into the sky. West Harbour has become the favourite spot of the citizens of Malmö during the summer months and today Kockums shipyard workers are replaced by students from Malmö University and employees of the city’s media- environment- and construction companies. Although the area is developed at a furious pace – much remains to be done. Join us on a journey through time and look into the future that awaits us around the corner.
