Park Nynäshamn/Sweden

Nynäshamn and the surrounding coastal landscape are part of Stockholm‘s Skärgård.

The openness and expanse of landscape in the urban area are identified as the silent potentials of the location. The ‚dislocations and scars‘ in the surface of the park derived from the surrounding island landscape and its glacial formation form a fine but simultaneously robust framework, and spatially and atmospherically differentiated places of varying intensity are created within this structure. A juxtaposition of ecological spheres of retreat and diverse sports and leisure uses is thus created. The space still remains flexible for unforeseen developments: new ideas for use and superimpositions are dynamic components of the park development. Seasonal flooding of the area, more frequent in recent years, is regulated by the lowered central park meadow working as drainage area.
