Kalejdohill is an ongoing experiment into the making of place. Commissioned to Urban Sociologist Mia Lundstrom by HSB Norra Stor-Stockholm, Veidekke and Einar Mattson housing cooperatives, Kalejdohill is a research on how to involve the community of Jarfalla into the decision making for a new development in the area of Kvarnbacken.
Kalejdohill closely collaborates with the municipality of Jarfalla on a dual strategy of site specific interventions combined with knowledge production on the making of cities and public spaces.

Järfälla traces its history to the Stone Age and has some ruins from that time. After being Christianized in the 11th century, a church was built around the year 1200 that still stands today. Järfälla continued to be of some importance in the Middle Ages as several important roads went through it. Furthermore, the centre of the hundred was located within the boundaries of the municipality from 1675 to 1905.
The main population expansion came in the 1930s and 1940s, when many residential houses were built in the seat Jakobsberg for middle-class families commuting to Stockholm.
