Full details available on the Future Distributed blog.

This week’s show comes from Sweden. I sat down with Jerker Lessing, the Head of Research and Development for BoKlok, the collaboration between Skanska and Ikea, building beautiful pre-fabricated homes in Sweden, the Nordics and now the UK too. 

In this episode, we’ll be answering some big question like:  

  • How can pre-fabricated housing meet the urgent requirement to build more, high-quality homes in cities around the world? 
  • What are some of the benefits of manufacturing houses in this way? 
  • And what are some of the key areas that BoKlok will be focussing on as they scale their operations overseas.
