During the summer of 2021 Exercisplan at ArkDes becomes a place to discover new ways of being together. Studio Ossidiana designs an outdoor gathering space for everyone to make their own and celebrate being among one another.
Conceived as an archipelago of activities and encounters, Studio Ossidiana’s installation is a celebration of the potential of public space. From play and meditation to open-air community meetings and demonstrations, their design sets a stage for new ways of being together. It highlights the symbolic action of shared experiences – with others, with nature, and with our surroundings.
Utomhusverket is ArkDes’s annual summer outdoor installation. With each commission, Utomhusverket stitches the spaces of the museum to the streets of the city by way of a large-scale outdoor installation, creating a testing ground that makes room for architects and designers to imagine new possibilities for public life. Each iteration seeks to demonstrate the potential of inclusive and design-driven public space, enabling individual and collective action in the heart of the city.
