2008 VEJLE TOWNPARK
TOWN OF VEJLE - first prize
In 1990, this project won 1st prize in a competition about a new town park in Vejle. The park was established when Vejle Music Theatre was built in 1992 and awarded “The Year’s Green Prize” in 1996. The project was extended in several steps and has been ongoing for a 16 year period where the design was further developed. The existing park’s motif of a town by a river between forest-clad hills is continued in the new part of the park. Four bridges cross over the previously pipelined river. Sheets of water spread out across the park and become paddling pools and fountains. The promenade links the Town Hall with the Music Theatre and creates an important connection to the town centre.
