I have focused on the southernmost corner of Södertäljehallen. Two sculptural forms that extend across the ground and take over the surface. The inspiration for the sculptures comes partly from thoughts about the city as an organic construction where spaces get their own life in relation to those who move in its vicinity. These grass surfaces will be spaces between the hall and the running tracks and those who move around there will own the space through their presence. I want my sculptures to serve as meeting places.
The shapes may not be directly associated with function, but the surfaces will be flat and invite you to sit and walk on them. The materials are polished concrete and steel where the large volumes consist of the concrete and the tips are steel. The technology they are manufactured on comes from methods of building skate parks, where there is definitely a great focus on sustainability. The steel is corten, rusty, treated with black oil paint, which creates a depth in the surface.
